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.
Sturdier than foam blocks, but safer for the environment than wooden ones. Who could ask for more? Bamboo is a fast-growing grass, rather than a slow-growing wood, and is therefore a more ecologically responsible material. In addition, these blocks are also very elegant - their distinct grain pattern gives each one a unique beauty. These excellent blocks weigh about 2 pounds each. Sold INDIVIDUALLY - not as a set of 2. Highly recommended! 3" x 5" x 9". PLEASE NOTE that due to the distinct appearance of each bamboo block, the actual block that you receive may differ in appearance from this image.
