Review: Manduka unBLOK

I have a juicy product review for you guys today. I tend to be choosy about which products I will accept for review on the blog, because I want to keep it honest. I do review most yoga products, so when Manduka contacted me about reviewing their new yoga block, I was psyched.

unBLOK BreezeThunder In Packaging Angled 2pcs 400x161 Review: Manduka unBLOK

Here are the details about the unBLOK:

  • Made of over 50% recycled material (foam)
  • Rounded shape
  • Slip-resistant

I was skeptical about the shape when I first saw the unBLOK because I’m so used to the normal, rectangular block shape that most other yoga blocks have. But I actually think I preferred using the unBLOK. I tried some supported chest and shoulder openers (supported fish, supported bridge), and this block was great. It’s much nicer to have a slightly rounded curve supporting your back than a straight block.

yesterday morning (sunday @ 11am) i went to the “mindbody bootcamp” taught by the founder, brian delmonico. all of their classes are barefoot, which i think is fantastic – our feet are sensitive and should not be confined all the time. this mindbody bootcamp class had the following format:

  • centering exercise at the beginning (less than 5 minutes) – sitting, child’s pose, some hands and knees stuff (i don’t remember it all)

soft serve fruit [review]

b and i had the pleasure of trying soft serve fruit a few nights ago for dessert. i have actually had it before, but when soft serve fruit contacted me and asked if i’d like some cards for samples… of course i said yes! i already knew i liked it.

what is soft serve fruit?

>> it’s a healthified soft serve ice cream made of fruit, water, and organic cane sugar. it’s vegan and kosher. the small cup has less than 90 calories.

we were on the upper east side for some reason (new apartment stuff? i don’t remember), so we went to the location at east 78th st and 3rd ave. after tasting the banana, mango, and raspberry, we settled on a banana sundae
