Our Align cork block is made of high quality sustainable cork which will support you in every asana. It will help you feel stable and strengthen every asana of yours. It is easy to grip and comfortable.
Cork blocks are used as a prop in yoga asana practice. The purpose of a yoga block is to help stabilize poses and make them more accessible to yogis of different abilities and body types. In addition, yoga blocks can be used to deepen a pose or stretch.
Cork is the outer bark of the Oak Tree. The Oak tree is never cut down to harvest cork, rather the bark is stripped by hand! No part of the bark is wasted during cork production. Oak trees regenerate their bark by absorbing five times more Carbon Dioxide than an oak tree that hasn't been harvested.
The Best Thing: They come from the Earth, they go back into the Earth! The mat is 100% biodegradable, so by buying it you aren't increasing your carbon footprint.
Yoga is a powerful practice and we want to inspire our tribe to explore this using the right tools. The right tools are found in nature.
Mother Earth has given us a beautiful home in which we find food to eat, air to breathe, medicines to heal, sunsets to enjoy, mountains to hike, water to survive. She also gave us fibers whose quality surpass manmade alternatives. To illustrate our proof on concept we created our Ahimsa Mat. It is made using sustainable materials, is 100% biodegradable and chemical free. It grips much better than plastic mats, is anti-slip, odorless, and longer lasting. The values behind this mat inspired the rest of our yoga gear + activewear.
Let us tread lightly on Mother Earth by giving what we can and taking only what we need.
