In this article we’ll put the spotlight on the Gaiam Cork Yoga Brick.

It’s been popular on the market ever since it was launched and so we decided to take a closer look at it for you. Here we go:

Our rating: 9 / 10

Cost: $$

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Filled with non-toxic silica gel
  • Great for any yoga experience level
  • The brand has a good reputation
  • Lightweight and convenient
  • Useful for various yoga positions
  • Water-resistant

Cons:

  • The sand in the block tends to fall out occasionally
  • May take longer to ship compared to other models
  • You cannot reshape the block
  • Somewhat wobbly

The Gaiam Cork Yoga Block has beautiful cork instead of a standard foam block. I find this more than acceptable because cork is proven over time to absorb more sweat than foam, making it safer for both you and the rubber seals of your mat.

I really like this as it is lighter and more malleable than the foam blocks I've used in the past. It's perfect for helping with balance and achieving those nifty back-bending poses.

The overall dimensions are 12 x 9 x 3 inches and it weighs in at 3 pounds. It's also 100% natural, biodegradable and recyclable. It comes with a 1-year limited warranty.
