Requirements for EVA Block materials for yoga exercise bricks

  In yoga practice, EVA Block (ethylene vinyl acetate block material) is often used to make yoga blocks. The following are the requirements for EVA Block materials generally used to make yoga blocks, including hardness, density, thickness, weight and color, as well as the differences in requirements for EVA Block materials for different yoga exercise blocks.

EVA yoga blocks

  Hardness and density: Generally, yoga blocks need to have a certain hardness and density to provide sufficient support and stability. Generally speaking, EVA Block with a hardness between 20-40 Shore hardness is more suitable for making yoga blocks. In terms of density, the common density range is 0.2-0.4g/cm³, which ensures that the yoga block has a certain weight and stability.

  Thickness and weight: The thickness and weight of the yoga block will affect its effectiveness. Thicker yoga blocks may be better for providing higher support, while lighter blocks are easier to carry and use. Typical thickness is between 3-10cm and weight depends on size and density.

  Color: In terms of color, EVA Block can have a variety of choices to meet the preferences and needs of different people. Common colors include black, gray, pink, etc. Some people may prefer colors that match their yoga mats, while others are more focused on the visual stimulation of colors.

  Differences in requirements for different yoga exercise bricks:

  Standard Yoga Block: Usually used for general yoga practice, the hardness, density and weight need to be well balanced to adapt to the needs of various postures.

  Long yoga blocks: used to assist stretching and deep stretching, which may require longer sizes and relatively low stiffness.

  Round or triangular yoga blocks: These shaped yoga blocks may be used for specific yoga movements or provide different support angles, and the requirements for hardness and density may vary.

  For example, for yoga moves that require more support, such as handstands or planks, you may want to use a harder, denser block. In some flexibility training, relatively soft yoga blocks may be needed to avoid excessive pressure.

  Generally speaking, choosing a suitable EVA Block material to make a yoga block requires comprehensive consideration of factors such as hardness, density, thickness, weight, and color. Different yoga exercise blocks may have specific requirements to meet different yoga practice needs and personal preferences. When selecting and using yoga blocks, it is recommended to choose according to your physical condition and the purpose of yoga practice, and follow the guidance of professional yoga instructors.
