Bamboo Yoga Blocks
Bamboo is the most sustainable material for yoga blocks.
Bamboo is known as the fastest growing renewable resource. Over half of the worlds population uses it every single day. It has earned the nickname of being "the plant of 1001 uses" because of its broad uses throughout the world. We have also chosen it for the inherent yogic qualities of being green, flexible, bending in difficulty, but never breaking. There is a traditional belief that it can restore calmness and stimulate creativity. Bamboo groves were a favorite dwelling place of the Buddha. Enjoy this block as it supports you in your practice of Yoga.
