No matter if it's your second time on your mat or if handstands are like second nature to you; the yoga wheel can help you progress in your practice. That's exactly why this bad boy is going in my list of favorites, the possibilities are endless. Some days I use my wheel at the beginning of my practice to help open up my spine, while other days I use it to help me progress in my more advanced asanas, like dancers pose. So no matter where you are in your journey, if you're looking for a new prop to play with give the yoga wheel a try.
Here are a couple of my favorite ways to use my wheel:
Place it between your shoulder blades and lay your arms out in a T by your sides. This is a great heart opener.
Come into a high plank position with your wheel underneath the tops of your feet, roll yourself forwards and backwards engaging your core and working on the mobility in your wrists.
Sit on top of the wheel and try to find your balance in a boat pose (make sure that there's nothing near by that you might accidentally roll into).
Go into camel pose with the wheel between your feet, then grab the wheel and roll yourself backwards. This will help you work towards little thunderbolt pose.
