Hugger Mugger Yoga Products - Cork Block 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" x 9"
Hugger Mugger Cork Blocks are made from fast-growing, renewable cork, which makes these blocks stable, long lasting and comfortable. Cork harvesting is a sustainable process that has remained virtually unchanged for 3,000 years. Made from the bark of long-lived cork oak trees, cork is stripped from the trees every decade, a process that actually maintains the health of the trees, and their surrounding ecosystem. Cork is extremely durable, yet slightly porous, giving it the perfect balance for use in our yoga blocks. Its natural texture provides traction, while the rounded edges make this block very comfortable in supported poses.

About Hugger Mugger Yoga Products
Sara Chambers, founder of Hugger-Mugger, was an accomplished woodworker when she came to yoga. Its tremendous impact on her health made yoga a way of life for Sara. She began developing wooden and fabric tools to help with her practice. Local teachers and students asked Sara to make things for them, and word spread. Sara continued to develop products for fellow yogis, including the company's namesake, Hugger-Muggers, the now-famous unisex yoga shorts with a legband around the thighs to cover what's underneath. Since the word hugger-mugger means to conceal, the catchy name Hugger-Mugger fit.
Among Hugger-Mugger's most noted designs is the Tapas Sticky Mat, which has become the yoga practice essential. Predecessor mats were not designed specifically for yoga and would deteriorate quickly with use. The Tapas Sticky Mat was the first long-term performance yoga mat and continues to set the standards for the industry.
For more than 20 years, Hugger-Mugger has been known as an innovator of technically excellent yoga products serving yoga teachers and students throughout the world.
Hugger-Mugger is committed to developing products of performance, style and comfort. Their team strongly believes in the benefits of the practices of yoga and meditation. Hugger-Muggers feel life is a journey and yoga enriches us in many ways, making the journey one of celebration. This belief evolved into their motto: "Celebrate The Journey."
