Very stable and robust yoga block made of natural cork to support the asana postures.
The cork used to make the yoga blocks is granulated cork. This virgin granulated cork comes from the waste cork used to make wine bottle caps.
The cork oak, Quercus super, grows in Portugal and other countries bordering the western edge of the Mediterranean basin. The cork is harvested by removing the bark of the tree. Cork extraction is 100% safe for the tree - which is not felled - and its surface suffers no damage. The harvest takes place in a cycle of 9 to 10 years. The cork tree must be about 25 years old (virgin cork) before the first harvest, after which nine years must pass before it can be harvested again. Fortunately, the cork tree lives for 180 to 200 years, so it can be harvested 15 to 20 times.
What makes cork so special are its properties and possible applications:
Properties: Lightness, elasticity, impermeability, insulation, wear resistance, hypoallergenic and fireproof.
Application areas: Construction, interior design, leisure, fashion and technology.
The purchase and use of cork products contributes to the conservation of a natural, renewable resource and an important ecological environment in Western Mediterranean countries.
