Wheel-pose!

This pose recently became possible for me! If this pose feels impossible I really recommend practicing the earlier steps and practicing with holding a elastic strap tighed around your feet – worked for me!

  1. Start by laying on your stomach. Lift your feet and try to reach your legs with your hands. Relax your neck. Breath in and out a few times and feel how it affects your balance. Experiment by tightening your legs and pulling your upper body up, and relaxing your legs and pulling them closer to your upper body.
  2. If you feel ready for the next step, put a strap around your foot and pulling it up with your arm. Keep your other arm and leg in previous position. If you get really close with your foot to your arm you can try without a strap – reach for your foot behind you, rotate your wrist and hold your foot. Aim to have your arm and leg as straight as possible.
  3. Now try with the strap on both feet holding it with both arms. When you feel ready, start in position 1. Then let go of your legs but try to keep them up. Rotate your wrists, grab your toes and pull your feet up. Good luck!
