The Road to Wheel Pose Class 4: Wheel Pose

Class Description

You’ve arrived at the the fourth and final stop: urdhva danurasana (wheel pose)!

You’ll begin with a standing warm-up before moving into a sequence that includes bow pose variations, a figure four to dancer to lunge flow, camel variations, bird dog twists, and half splits as you prep for wheel.

After that, Dianne offers a block-supported version of this big backbend, a step-by-step approach toward an unsupported version of it, a bolster-supported variation, and finally, a supported version you can do with a friend. And as always, she encourages you to adjust the pose to fit your body, not the other way around.
