Cork Block / Cork yoga block
Cork version of the traditional yoga block. Useful in many applications such as support and grip for free body gymnastics exercises, improve the body’s alignment, prevents injuries, and alleviates strain. Due to its manufacturing in cork, it proves to be harder when compared to the EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) version (code 4200). Robust, stable, very sturdy, non-deformable, never slippery.
Dimensions: 15 x 23 cm. Height: 7 cm.
The Cork tools set is composed of 5 tools:
This set represents a particularly improved solution mostly from an aesthetic point of view, as the cork expresses the image of a natural material, bio-compatible, in harmony with life, which appears extremely coherent with this type of equipment, often used as accessories for holistic disciplines.
There are also technical aspects that justify the realization of this fitness tool, with this specific material, to be used in contact with the body. The cork is structured in closed cells and it has important qualities: non-toxic, hypoallergenic, odorless, waterproof, compact, resistant, light, durable, and flexible. It is no coincidence that the classical application of the cork is linked with the production of caps for wine bottles.
The reaction of the cork to the wetness, and in particular in this case to our sweat, and its elevated waterproof qualities could be considered the most important aspects in the fitness application of this material, both for its hygienic function and for the safety fact that the cork does not become slippery. The elevated grip is indeed an important quality of these tools, which become essential in the case of the mat. The Cork Mat code 3014 is extraordinarily slip-resistant: actually, the more it gets wet the more it increases its grip on the surface. This is optimal for any holistic discipline, with particular reference to Hot Yoga.
