Gaiam All-Grip Yoga Brick

Gear Review: Gaiam All-Grip Yoga Brick

One great thing about going to a studio for a yoga class is that there are so many great props you can use, like straps, bolsters, blankets, chairs, and blocks. I've seen and used just about every kind of yoga prop out there and love that they help assist me in correct alignment, or help me to get a deeper stretch. Then Gaiam sent me this unique All-Grip Yoga Brick ( $15) and I thought, "Now that's something I've never seen before."

The hole, shaped liked an infinity symbol, in the center is a brilliant idea. Not only does it make the block lighter than a regular foam or cork block, but the opening is actually ergonomically shaped, making it easier to hold on to. I felt more stable and in control when using this purple brick, which meant I could hold poses longer and go deeper into my practice. I also noticed that sometimes when I place my palm flat on a regular block, and put pressure down, I feel pain in my wrist. Gripping this block completely alleviated that discomfort and was very comfortable to use. If you love working with props while doing yoga, you'll definitely want to try this innovatively designed block. I bet it will change the way you practice.
