5 Reasons You Need a Yoga Wheel
1. Pain Relief (Works like magic especially for spine, shoulders & hips!)
Being car- or desk-bound all day does a number on your spine, shoulders and even your hips. Using a yoga wheel regularly is an amazing way to iron out knots and release tension.
As a Yoga Teacher, I talk to many people with back pain and poor posture. Often this is related to spending too much time doing things like sitting at a desk, driving, or picking up heavy objects (like kids!).
Using a yoga wheel is a fantastic way to help reverse this effect. It even helps people who have never practiced yoga before and aids deep stretching all over the body.
Not only is this active prop gaining popularity in the yoga world but also in athletics.
2. Preventing Injury (Additional support as you strengthen.)
Using a yoga wheel to support your poses can offer a lot of additional support.
Many people need to ease into backbends and other poses and everyone can benefit from the additional support and stability that the yoga wheel provides.
Consult the Ultimate Guide to the Yoga Wheel by Tranquil Yogi to find safe and effective ways to use your yoga wheel.
3. Improve Flexibility (Stretch further than you thought possible!)
Using a yoga wheel can help you build your flexibility and will not only help you nail those difficult stretches safely but also enhance your overall yoga practice.
Incorporating a yoga wheel into your yoga routine will give you the confidence to stretch further than normal, eventually allowing you to move your body in ways you never could before.
Whether you have flexibility goals or simply want to get deeper into your practice, the wheel can become your best friend.
4. Build Strength (Active props create instability to engage muscles.)
A lesser-known way that the Yoga Wheel can be used is to help build strength in the body.
The yoga wheel is an ‘active prop’ that is not only used to create stability or enhance extension but also can be used in ways to make the body work harder by introducing ‘instability’.
What this means is that if you take a static pose (plank for example), and introduce the yoga wheel either at the hands or the feet you can incorporate stabilizer muscles that you may not even know you have!
Try it! You may (or may not) have mastered plank, but when you add the wheel you will considerably increase your muscular engagement.
5. Support Inversions (Take your practice to another level.)
The yoga wheel is an excellent way to support and improve your inversion practice.
Whether you are working on wheel pose, bridge pose, forearm stand, handstand, plow, or other inversion poses the wheel can be used either to support you in those poses or to enhance the difficulty of the poses to help you to take it to the next level.

After trying a number of top branded yoga mats, I finally found one that actually grips you in place – the Oasis Yoga Mat. I don’t slip, and I sweat a LOT!
