A yoga wheel is a circular shaped prop that helps open the front side body, assists in advanced yoga postures, and rolls out the spine.
Basically – it’s the bomb.
At first glance, it can be hard to imagine why anyone would spend over $100 on a wooden wheel that you roll around on. I was in that same boat too, until I actually tried the damn thing.
And here’s why:
- The yoga wheel will immediately stretch your entire front side body – hip flexors, abdomen, chest, and shoulders. It’s a serious heart opener!
- It will massage the entire length of your spine in a safe but deep way.
- The wheel helps yoga practitioners move deeper into postures, specifically heart opening postures like backbends and forearm balances.
At this point, you might be almost convinced about this circle shaped yoga thing. Or at the very least, you now understand the thought process behind it.
