Wheel Pose: Urdhva Dhanurasana

So many reasons to love this backbend. What are your favourite benefits of Full Wheel?

It helps to stretch shoulders, chest and hip flexors, strengthen arms, wrists, back, hamstring and core. Also, this pose stimulates the thyroid and pituitary gland, and opens the heart center. 

I used to hate practicing this pose because it hurts my lower back until I have learned how to do it correctly. It felt so good 💙.  

To avoid the pressure to your lower back, you have to engage your thighs, lift your chest up and push your shoulders forward. 

More importantly, you have to do some warm-up back and thighs like corbra pose and amel pose. 

Try and let me know if it works for you 😊. Hope it will become your favourite pose too.
