Day 8: Wheel Pose or Urdhva Dhanurasana

Welcome to Day 8 of the November #YogaWithTFM 10-Day Challenge.  Today’s pose is Wheel Pose or Urdhva Dhanurasana.

See the video below for a tutorial on how to get into Wheel Pose, and keep in mind these three tips:

1. Keep your feet parallel and thighs hugging into the midline.

2. If you are just beginning… Try pushing into your feet and lifting your hips first, then slowly push into your hands coming onto the crown of you head.

3. Keep your abdominal muscles engaged to protect your low back.

Please remember to warm up before participating in any challenge.  If you would like to practice with us, download our 24-minute Backbends Practice class here.
