But relax, I will try to review them and try to provide you the product details so that you will be able to decide which cork yoga brand to choose.
You might think that all of the cork yoga blocks are the same or similar. You are actually right about it. Some of them are cheap and some of them are very expensive. The size of the cork yoga blocks and the quality of them are matters. Let’s explore which one is better for you.
1. Hugger Mugger Cork Yoga Block
You might be familiar with Lululemon, Gaiam or Manduka when you search for yoga mat brands. Hugger Mugger is not very popular among yoga mats but its cork yoga blocks are enjoyed by many people. Hugger Mugger is one of the most eco-friendly yoga brand and its yoga blocks also prove this. The quality is great and you can use it for many years.
You will feel the advantage in staying at balance. Some of the people find that Hugger Mugger cork yoga blocks are very heavy and it is hard to carry on with you. You can also find it hard to use this block on standing yoga poses. For example, using it between your legs. They are okay when you use them on the floor. The price is around $20 so it is very close to the average price.
Tip 1: If you care about the quality and the eco-friendly products, go with Hugger Mugger.
Tip 2: Keep away them from your cat 🙂
2. Peace Yoga Cork Yoga Block
Peace Yoga Cork Blocks come with 2 blocks. The price is around $17 too, almost half of Hugger Mugger Yoga Block. You will have 2 blocks at a very reasonable price. The advantage is Peace Yoga cork blocks are very light. You can easily carry on. Well, they are not very eco-friendly and you will smell the chemical when you just purchase them. After using them for a few weeks, the smell goes away though. One of the cons is that Peace Yoga does not stand so long. After using them a year, the cork generally begins to crumble.
Tip: If you are a beginner in yoga, go with Peace Yoga as the price is very affordable.
3. Manduka Cork Yoga Block
Another eco-friendly block and does not smell chemicals! Manduka Cork Yoga Blocks also do not absorb the sweat so you will always enjoy the good smell of your blocks. You will enjoy the stability during the balancing poses. Manduka blocks are also very heavy and you might find it hard to carry on them with you. You can enjoy them when you use them at home or during your yoga studio class.
You might be confused between Hugger Mugger and Manduka. They are almost the same in quality and the price. Hugger Mugger is a bit cheaper than Manduka (Only 1 $). Manduka is slightly more elastic and less smooth than Hugger Mugger. There is really not so much different between them.
