Wheel pose is an intermediate to advanced posture that can be quite intimidating at first! It’s not uncommon for people to experience lower back pain when doing a deep back bend like this one. However, in this 40 minute class I will prep you perfectly for this peak pose so that you will hopefully be very comfortably challenged in it! The key to wheel pose is to open up the hip flexors, strengthen the back body, enage the core and open up the chest and shoulders. Grab your mat and let’s get started 🙂 Yoga with Kassandra – Disclaimer Please consult with your physician before beginning any exercise program.

    What a great class, so energizing. I was never able to do the Wheel and this time, I was also not able to lift my head up from the ground. I guess I have to work on arm strength, I guess? I will come back and practise this 🙂 Thanks so much, Kassandra!
