Ardha Chandrasana - Yoga Block

Like blankets, blocks are props to make yourself more comfortable and improve your alignment. Blocks are great for standing poses in which one hand is on the floor, such as Ardha Chandrasana. You can also sit on them in poses like Virasana. This one is made of cork, though many are made of foam.
