Great value for Yoga Blocks and Strap

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:well made, very inexpensive for 2 blocks and a strap under $11.

Cons:you need to get a case and mat separately.

The Bottom Line: It's great as long as you don't need a case or mat.


Many thanks to the category lead, Openroad, for adding this to the database.


At the first of the year, my office started yoga twice a week. I signed up, figuring that I could use the movement and the breath. I didn't have any illusions about my lack of flexibility, modest upper body strength and my need to lose 60 more pounds. Plus, I was coming from a fitness level of ground zero after having a hospital stay at the end of last year and a doctor-ordered 7 weeks of no lifting. However, this class was billed as open to everybody and so I joined.


I had done yoga before but not with straps or blocks. However, the leader suggested both, particularly for novice users. Most of the kits I looked at included a mat, at least one block, some had straps, some didn't, and most had some sort of carrying case. I had plenty of tote bags and a couple of mats I was using for band exercises, so basically I needed blocks and a strap and nothing else.


A little bit of web surfing identified the kin Now Yoga Blocks and Strap Kit, with 2 blocks and a strap and nothing else for $10.77 and I bought it from a local Wal-Mart. The kit includes 2 dense (with my cute color choice, periwinkle) 3x6x9 in yoga blocks, and a canvas strap of  68 inches. Most of these items would have cost $7 or more each. That represented a great value. What these do is make it easier to do the moves. When I can't reach all the way to the floor, or get enough of  my hand on the floor to balance, the blocks permit me to grab them and lean on them, thus increasing my stability. I use them frequently in every yoga class. I use the strap less regularly, but it does help for those moves where I need to reach back and grab my ankles and can't.


As difficult as this class is for me, I'm able to do more with these accessories. Yoga remains a humbling experience and I have a long way to go. Still, this kit has helped me and represents a great value as long as you don't need a mat or carring case.


5 stars.
