Wheel PoseLevel: Intermediate

Yogi and Fitness Coach Yana of Xodus Fitness in San Francisco demonstrates Wheel Pose.

Instructions: Lie supine on the mat. Bend your knees and place feet on the floor, bringing the heels as close to the buttocks as possible (feet should remain parallel to mat).

Bend your elbow and place palms next  to your shoulders with fingertips pointing towards shoulders (forearm is almost perpendicular to the floor).

Press your feet and hands firmly on the mat and with an exhalation, lift the buttocks, head off the floor and straighten the arms.

Keep the thighs and inner feet parallel with the mat. Turn the upper thighs slightly inward and firm the outer thighs.

Key Points

-Spread the shoulder blades and let the head hang

-Stay in the posture for as long as you can with normal breathing.  

Benefits of Wheel Pose:

-Stretches the muscles in front torso

-Strengthens the arms and wrists, legs, buttocks, abdomen, and spine

-Stimulate the thyroid and pituitary gland

-Energizing pose that counteracts depression
