Yoga blocks (also known as yoga bricks) are offered in several dimensions. The most common are 3" x 5.5" x 9" or 4" x 6" x 9", but others are offered as well. So, which yoga block size is right for you? You'll need to consider a few things to help you decide. Each yoga block offers three different heights: upright (9"), side (5-6"), and flat (3-4").
What is your current flexibility capability? If you fold forward into Uttanasana (forward bend), and you are not very flexible you may want a block that offers support at 9", 6", and again at 4" from the ground. But if you are more flexible, you might prefer support at 9", 5", and then at 3" to get you closer to your goal - which is to have your hands on the floor.
How is your balance and inner core strength? In some challenging balance poses, such as Ardha Chandrasana, you might feel more comfortable with a wider, thicker block for stability when using it in an upright position.
Where do you practice? Smaller, lightweight yoga blocks will be easier for transporting. Consider the smaller size and a lightweight material.
