What We Liked: 

If you’re like us, you check product reviews before you buy. Well, this set of AmazonBasics Yoga Blocks had the most 5-star consumer reviews of any blocks we tested, so we had high expectations. We were not disappointed. While not as firm as others we tested, these blocks offered good support for a variety of poses, especially forward bends, counterposes and stretching. The surface is slip-resistant and includes round edges for a comfortable grip. We found them comfortable and easy to use. One downside: they’re only offered in 2 color choices—black or purple. We wish there were more! Buy them here.

What We Liked:

We found the Gaiam Yoga Block to be our favorite for all-around performance and quality. For starters, it was firmer than the others we tried, which was particularly appreciated by those of us who have more weight to support during certain poses. The non-slip surface performed well, even after working up a sweat. Plus, it’s worth noting that this Gaiam Block is latex-free, so if you have a latex allergy this is the one for you. And we loved that it’s available in a variety of color choices, including soothing blues and greens, and vibrant pinks and purples. Get it now.
