So what's different about the Mini Block, and how can you incorporate it into your practice? This product was created with portability in mind; you can easily toss two into your bag and head to a favourite studio class. If space is of the essence in your small home or apartment, you'll barely notice these blocks until it's time to unroll your mat. If your kids are yoga-curious, they're bound to enjoy these props that are just their size.
Mini Block Use #1: Light-weight and easy to manoeuvre during your practice, these small-but-mighty Mini Blocks provide excellent support in grounded postures like Half Pigeon, Half Splits, or Runner's Lunge.
Mini Block Use #2: These palm-sized blocks extend your Downward Facing Dog or Tabletop Pose, creating more space for a smooth transition to low-lunge. The Mini Blocks can also alleviate wrist compression and create additional space across the shoulder girdle. For a new experience in Plank Pose or Side Plank Pose, keep the blocks underneath your hands as you flow.
Mini Block Use #3: Easy to grip because of their perfect size, Mini Blocks are an arm-balancer's dream. Try the Mini Blocks under your hands in postures like Crow Pose or Firefly pose--you might be surprised that the extra height makes these postures more accessible. Looking to heat up your handstands? Mini Blocks are portable, adorable handstand canes.
As one of the above-mentioned Sales Reps, the Mini Block became the star of my home practice long before it went to production. Please enjoy some of my favourite uses of the Mini Block included throughout this article, but know the true excitement of this product is seeing how yoga students and teachers globally explore its use. We can't wait to see what you come up with.
