Poses for Strength Using the Yoga Wheel Exercises

Many of us bought a yoga mat to relieve tension and increase our spine mobility. You can backbend like this because it is so cool!

It’s perfectly fine. This is why the yoga wheel was created in the first instance.

Here’s the deal.

We often forget to include one other essential ingredient in our quest for flexibility: backbends.

It’s not muscle length.

It is muscle strength.

Here’s where yoga really shines.

There’s more to strength-building than what we often think of, beyond the simple yoga wheel (think backbending and spine rolling).

These free yoga wheel poses guides, which come with the prop, will show you how to stretch using a yoga mat. However they do not include strength-building exercises.

It’s a shame.

Today, I propose that we begin exploring the yoga wheel’s most unusual use – strength-building.

Let’s be very clear:

You don’t need to be a master at yoga wheel exercises to increase strength. One person recommended doing squats on a yoga wheel.

Yes, really.

It is believed to help you develop stability muscles and core strength.

While you can do what you like, I advise that you listen to your brain and not do it. You can use a yoga wheel exercises in safer and better ways to strengthen your core and increase stability.
