These yoga blocks are comfortable and lightweight and essential to your yoga practice. If you are new to yoga and not familiar with using blocks, they seem a bit extraneous at first (at least they did to me). But, once you get into doing more poses and using them as recommended, you will get a lot more out of your practice. I use these for a few poses that really help my back, neck and shoulders (perpetually achy from an old injury and too many desk hours). They are quite comfortable for putting under your neck or back or resting your head or leges on as well as helping you reach the floor in certain poses. They really do change the poses--sometimes making them more comfortable or reachable, and sometimes working different body parts entirely. Totally recommended.
