I love using cork blocks in my yoga practice and these are the best. They are extremely durable and although they are on the heavier side, I like to use them as weights during various poses when I am not using them to assist with balance. Perfection!
They are sturdy like many people say. But also very hard on my hands that they hurt. I am used to the ones used at the yoga studio. When I received the package I also noticed the color rubbing off and stained the sports bra that had came in the same box. I didn’t want to having to deal with this problem in the future so I returned them. I am sure they are great for many people, just not me. (My photo shows color coming off on the tissue)
