Using Blocks in Your Practice

Updated: Jan 31, 2022

Foam blocks are very common in yoga, meant to increase comfort and stability while in poses. This can be through either supporting a part of your body during a pose, or bringing the ground closer to your reach (like an extension of your arms).

You can use blocks to aid your practice in a variety of poses:


Place a block under your hip to elevate it as you stretch. You can also place a block on either side of your body and use your hands to ease yourself into the splits.

Downward-Facing Dog

Place blocks under your hands to bring the ground closer.

Crow Pose

Place blocks under your feet to elevate them for a jump start.

Fish Pose

Place a block (or a towel) under your back to assist in opening your heart.

There are so many ways to use props to train your body to master positions - or to make positions more comfortable for you. Remember to always do what feels best for your body during practice.
