Have you mastered UrdhvaDhanurasana (also known as WheelPose)? If you have been practicing wheel pose for quite some time and looking for new challenges, this one is for you.❗️If you are a beginner, go back to my first ever yogatutorial for how to get into Wheel Pose.⠀ 1️⃣This is the classic version. Be mindful in engaging your inner thighs and keeping your feet parallel.⠀
2️⃣With the heels off the floor, you will feel more space in the back. The only thing here is to remember to keep the thighs engaged and not to let the glutes do all the work.⠀
3️⃣You can keep the heels up or down in this photogenic variation. The top leg can also be straight to further challenge your strength and flexibility.⠀
4️⃣This one is wonderful for letting the lower back chill and focus the stretch on the upper back. If it is too deep, walk your feet further away from the hands.⠀
5️⃣This version really challenges the core and you keeping the even alignment and weight distribution through the arms and legs.⠀
6️⃣The half lotus leg requires your lower limbs to be super engaged and balanced. Once your foot is up, foot the knee in the lifted leg towards the floor.⠀
7️⃣The position of having forearms on the floor opens your shoulders nicely. The head is not touching the floor here so you cam keep a nice space around your shoulders.⠀
8️⃣This one is pretty intense for the lower back so i recommend keeping your heels up to make more space. If you feel comfortable, plant the heels down (and parallel) THEN you can grab your ankles.⠀
9️⃣The last one stays true to the sanskrit name of the pose which is urdhva (upward-facing) dhanura (bow) 🏹asana (pose) ⠀
