Blocks offer the stability needed for ideal alignment, deeper poses, and increased strength. If seated poses make you cringe, employing a block can take some of the edge off your hamstrings or lower back. If you're unable to touch the ground in standing poses, bring the ground closer to you by balancing your hand on a block instead of the floor! You'll get the same benefits of the full posture without the risk of pushing yourself too far.
