Turns out it’s the Dharma Yoga Wheel, and turns out it’s everywhere. So much so that even celebrities have been Instagraming their wheel-inclusive asana practices. And even if you’re not into Instagram (or late ’90s pop stars), you might have noticed a yoga wheel or two showing up at. The yoga wheel is a new yogi trend that has been popping up all over instagram and even into classes. It’s uses and functionality are not widely known so I’m here to shed some light on this new yoga accessory.

To start with the basics, the yoga wheel is a circular shaped prop that helps open up the body and helps in advanced yoga poses. There’s a new trend in the yoga world and it’s quickly become the must-have product of the year. It’s been seen in the hands of well-known yogis far and wide, and even celebrities have been sharing their love for it. So what is this new trend I speak of It’s the yoga wheel.

The yoga wheel is a hollow, circular shaped prop designed for aiding stretching, releasing tension and improving flexibility. According to Lucy Arnold, yoga instructor, personal trainer and founder. Gaiam’s yoga prop set comes equipped with three pieces: two yoga blocks and one strap.

The blocks are made out of durable foam and coated with a non-slip surface to ensure your stability. Dharma Yoga Wheels started popping up all over our Instagram, and we knew we had to check them out. We loved the possibilities of this yoga prop, and even with other wheels and props like it out there, this yoga wheel takes the cake. YogiWheel is slightly wider than other models allowing for. Like other yoga props, the wheel quite literally can help deepen a stretch or make certain poses more accessible to you.

A yoga wheel is especially great for stretching out your back and chest. While it isn’t one of the “classic” yoga props, it was crowned “the hottest yoga prop of 2018” so you aren’t going to be wasting your cash. Available through Yogikuti, or on Amazon.

Here at MyYogaWheels, we hand check every Yoga Wheel before sending out to our yogis to ensure each wheel is of the highest quality, and offer a money back guarantee on all our products if you are not 100% satisfied with the results. Find us on Instagram & Facebook and join 1000’s of happy MyYogaWheels customers showcasing their yoga ability!Maybe you’ve seen it at yoga events and festivals—a wooden or plastic wheel the size of a large pizza padded with yoga-mat material. Well, that is a Dharma Yoga Wheel, created by Dharma Yoga founder Sri Dharma Mittra and his son, and it is an amazing tool for warming up and moving safely into backbends, inversions, and other poses.

Plus, it is a boatload of fun to use!

  • Thank you for the video! I notice you don’t roll out the back onto the lumbar spine. Do you think it’s not healthy to use the wheel there? I asked the wheel company and they said it was OK and I’m confused

  • Today was the first day using my yoga wheel. It hurt my back so much. By hurt I mean my back is tight. But I can already feel the difference.

  • I’ve yet to find a Video of someone using yoga blocks that didn’t suck. You can relax over the yoga blocks in so many different positions and it will compress one muscle group while stretching the other. You can lay across it with a new your lower back and it will compress the muscles of your lower back while stretching your entire psoas muscle group it’s amazing! She does nothing like this but it’s a yoga block 101 technique!! I feel bad for all the people who actually try to use videos like this crap to Learn how to use a yoga block end up thinking that it’s no good just because they’ve never been taught right!

  • Very informative to me! I just received my own Yoga Wheel (Lotus Brand), & I had no idea how to use it. I’ll be using your video as a reference! TY!

  • Ok this one was easier in that I could set up my body and wheel safely in time with you every step of the way because the wheel I have is the same size as this one! Thank you x

  • Hello and thank you for your calming and beautiful video. I realize you are not a doctor when I ask my question. I have DDD with myofascial back pain of the neck and back herniated discs in neck and lower back and piriformis syndrome which travels from my right lower back straight down my leg to right above my knee -similar to sciatia. I have been working very hard for the past 3 years with P/T, chiropractor and acupuncture. I am 45 but in my younger days I was very active and could do fabulous backbends from both standing and mat positions. I was no olympian but I was a gymnast, a diver and swimmer. I worked out 5 days a week for 2 hours a day. Then I woke up one day about 8 years ago with pain all over. It hurt to bend and tie my shoes. Tomorrow I have an appointment with my chiropractor to look at my most recent X-rays and I plan to ask her opinion on whether using a yoga wheel is a good idea. I truly believe it is and I am also quite ready to take the next step. I really want to be me again. My question is about the size of the yoga wheel. Here goes… I am 5 feet tall. Is a smaller diameter better for a beginner or larger? My first opinion was larger but now as I watch your video I am thinking a smaller diameter would be best. My logic is telling me that a larger diameter would put more of a strain on my spine as I slowly lean back. Any info you can share with me is greatly appreciated. I am going to show my chiropractor your video too when we have our talk.

  • i’ve had one of these for a few years, now and only used it for basic stretching. I think its about time I learn all it can do lol.
