I got me a yoga block as I grew tired of using Shakespeare’s collected work in lieu of a block (true story). Now the bard (from the most part unread) rests in peace on the shelf and I’m looking to putting the block to test tomorrow morning (or noon, or whenever I chance to get up).
I’ve grown in the time-wasting habit of practising daily morning yoga, right after I get up and just before I go to sit on the terrace to have a smoke (true story too). I use a book/block whenever I can’t reach the ground, which is all the time. I’m probably not a down-to-earth person, hence my issues lowering myself to the earth.
The Yogistar block is extremely light, surprisingly stable and by all means better than Shakespeare. It has the bonus feature of being cat-proof too. The cat sniffed it, attempted to chew into it – which didn’t work owing to the rounded edges – and abandoned it for me to use. Good.
