Benefits of Yoga Bricks
The sometimes physically demanding poses seen in yoga can be daunting to a novice. Thankfully, there are quite a few tools that can make your yoga practice a lot easier. A yoga block is a nice little helper that you can use to facilitate many yoga poses, especially the ones that involve standing stretches. A yoga block is basically a brick-shaped "thing" made of cork, wood, or hard-foam. They are usually about 9 x 6 x 4 inches in size.
Helps you improve alignment
Problems like knee caving-in in bridge pose or squats, difficulty in keeping the knee aligned with the ankle in standing poses, or difficulty in keeping the spine straight, etc., are all alignment related problems. If we take the hip abductor muscles which are responsible for lifting your thigh out to the side, using the block will help engage the muscles properly, which in turn helps align the hip, knees, and spine and also keep them strong.
A good example is holding the blocks between your thighs in a bridge pose, boat pose, or in some utkatasana practiced with wall support. The block supports the abductors and helps you achieve proper spine alignment and at the same time, it helps strengthen the thigh muscles and avoids the knee from splaying. Understanding the movement of muscles that bring your legs towards the midline of your body, is crucial for people with joint issues or muscle imbalances.
Helps you stay in the posture for long
Holding yoga poses for long helps build strength, stamina, flexibility, and also helps achieve therapeutic benefits of the asana. A block can give you the stability and support required to hold the posture, stay calm, and breathe.
Styles like restorative yoga recommend the use of props because it helps you get all the benefits of the asana without really exerting yourself. You are able to hold the posture for long comfortably. For example, placing the block underneath your sacrum in an inversion like viparita Karani asana can help you hold the posture for an extended period of time and unwind.
Similarly, you can unwind in a bridge pose with the block underneath your sacrum. It helps stretch the lower back muscles.
