5 ways to use the Yoga Salachi Blocks!

If you practice yoga, then you already know that Yoga Blocks can be your best friend in your workout. However, if you are not familiar with them yet, we are here to suggest you how to use that unique tool in your everyday exercise.

Salachi Yoga Blocks is a supportive tool that helps beginners as much as experienced professionals. Many people that have reached a high level in yoga might have the impression that a supportive tool can be needless, although that can be overturned by thinking that a Yoga Block can change completely the whole process, the intensity and the depth of an Asana.

Let’s check some poses that can be combined perfectly with our stable Salachi Yoga Blocks made of cork.

Before you start training, make sure that you have chosen a stable surface for your workout and that your blocks rest securely on it.

1. Balasana

Balasana is a restful posture but because of the weight and position of the head, this posture can be a little uncomfortable.

Beginners:

Place the block under your forehead or at the space between your eyebrows.

Advanced:

Place your forearms or elbows on two yoga blocks for an arm and chest stretch.

2. Adho Mukha Svanasana

Adho Mukha Svanasana has many benefits. However, this pose can be challenging as it requires a lot of upper body strength and the need to hang the head below the heart.

Beginners:

Place the blocks underneath your palms and shift your weight back toward your heels to alleviate pressure in your wrists.

Advanced:

Place the blocks under your feet, at the same time touch the floor with your fingertips.

3. Uttanasana

Uttanasana posture stretches the entire back side of the legs and can be calming to the heart and mind. But it can also be challenging for those with limitations.

Beginners:

Place your hands without putting a lot of weight and on any appropriate height of the block. Bend your knees as much as and if you like.

Advanced:

Place one foot on each block. Depending on your foot size, you may need to turn the block diagonal or align two blocks to make it longer.

4. Utthita Trikonasana

Triangle Pose has numerous benefits but can be challenging for anyone who suffers from back pain or has limited mobility.

Beginners:

Place a block underneath your lower hand for added support

Advanced:

Place the blocks under your feet, at the same time touch the floor with your fingers.

5. Ustrasana (Camel Pose)

Blocks allow you to find ease in Camel Pose and serve as a reminder to live with an open heart at all times.

Beginners:

Place two blocks at an appropriate height beside each ankle. When you come back into Camel, release your hands onto the blocks. Try to not dump into your shoulders or place a lot of weight into the yoga blocks.

Advanced:

Place one block under each knee and one between your thighs as you practice a modified Floating Camel.
Place a block between your thighs and squeeze inward
Move into the Floating Camel posture by lifting your knees off the floor.
