Yoga Props Block Cork for Shoulderstand (Sarvangasana or Wiparita Karani)
Meant for support of the shoulders, so the head will rest a little lower, and the neck will be stretched less. This can be further varied by laying a folded towel or such beneath the head.
Benefits / Who it is for:
Iyengar, Anusara, Ashtanga, Restorative and Power Yoga; also in use in physiotherapy. Use in supported backbends. Place under hands in standing poses.
Fast-growing, renewable cork makes these blocks stable, long lasting and comfortable. Cork harvesting is a sustainable process that has remained virtually unchanged for 3,000 years. Made from the bark of long-lived cork oak trees, cork is stripped from the trees every decade, a process that actually maintains the health of the trees, and their surrounding ecosystem. Cork is extremely durable, yet slightly porous, giving it the perfect balance for use in our yoga blocks. Its natural texture provides traction, while the rounded edges make this block very comfortable in supported poses.
