The Revolutionary Yoga Block, Meditation Seat & Back Care Product Designed by a Physiotherapist

Welcome to the Buttafly

Maybe you are here because you are looking for a product to help you with back pain, or because you are looking for a better option for yoga and meditation than traditional yoga blocks and seats.
Please choose from the options above to best suit your needs.
The nature of the Buttafly means that there is a cross-over in the information provided on our pages. You can’t really talk about back pain without taking into account posture; and you can’t talk about how best to sit for meditation without considering posture.
If you have any questions about the Buttafly, please get in touch.

Choosing Your Buttafly

There are 3 different sizes of the Buttafly:
Standard, Flat & Tall
Each of them can be used in different ways as a yoga block.
As a meditation seat, the sloping surface of the Standard and Tall Buttafly is designed to suit that purpose.
The Flat Buttafly is designed as a stacker to provide additional height to the Standard and Tall; it can also be used as a yoga block.
For back care and back pain relief, we recommend the Standard Buttafly. 

Essential Back Care With The Buttafly


"I really struggle to sit cross legged in my yoga classes, due to tight hip muscle. With this block I could do all the seated postures, cross legged, in my class for the first time in years. Any of you who have the same problem, buy one.”

Karen Salisbury
" At the end of the day, once used, the product speaks for itself – it has revolutionised my life providing an opportunity for treatment whenever I need, help me to take control of my own physical well being… What could be better? ”

JoRae, Alchemy Woman
" What a wonderful product. It is so easy to use and has quick results! I had a free taster and I felt like my posture was aligned in minutes. So I bought one! ”
