Experience Deeper Yoga Backbends,Better Balance & Build Core Strength with the Yoga Wonder WheelTM!
Advance Your Yoga with this New Practice Prop
WHY THE WHEEL? Challenge your yoga practice in new and different ways…
Yoga mats and blocks have been around for decades, but the Yoga Wonder Wheel™ by YOGABODY is the latest addition to any at-home practice room or yoga studio that will help you take your postures to the next level. Deep, awe-inspiring backbends are what draw most people to the Wonder Wheel initially, but backbends are just the beginning. You’ll also build balance, core strength, release tension, and find ways to practice challenging poses that are otherwise inaccessible.
DEEPER BACKBENDS – most yoga students have a love/hate relationship with backbends. We need them, we want them, and yet, they are so challenging. Using the Wonder Wheel, you can practice passive backbends, particularly in your “tight spots” such as the middle and upper back that are difficult to access using traditional poses.
Of all the postures we teach, “Fish Pose” on the Wonder Wheel is probably the most popular. Most yoga backbends require strength to hold, so it’s difficult to release tightness; but using the Wonder Wheel, you can relax completely and practice long-hold, passive backbends which will improve your practice.
BETTER BALANCE – using the Wonder Wheel in classic standing poses like Warrior I, Warrior II, Side Angle, and Crescent Lunge, it challenges you in new and different ways. You’ll feel your legs burn (in a good way) as you work new muscles to find balance. Simple-looking poses become challenging immediately, and your wheel training benefits will help all your other movement practices.
BUILD YOUR CORE – yoga teachers talk constantly about core strength, but the truth is that most mat-based classes are very gentle when it comes to abdominal workouts. Using the Wonder Wheel, you can blast your core safely and effectively in a matter of minutes while having fun balancing on your arms and learning useful poses. Forget about boring sit-ups or crunches, try “flying crunches” or “pike crunches” on the wheel, and you’ll be a convert. These poses rock your core.
INCREASE FLEXIBILITY – by rolling your tight and stiff areas, you turn “off” your stretch reflex telling your nervous system it’s safe to go deeper. This “press to release” principle is called, autogenic inhibition, and it’s particularly useful for stiff back and shoulders, psoas, and hip flexors.
FULL CLASS PRACTICE! – we teach full, 60-minute Wonder Wheel classes that are comprehensive, challenging, and fun. You’ll experience standing poses, Moon Squats, twists, lunges, warrior poses, backbends, and more. Students are surprised by how many poses can be practiced with the wheel—and it’s not easy!
NOTE: currently, all Wonder Wheel orders include a FREE DVD for beginners.
SUPPLEMENT YOUR CURRENT PRACTICE – most Wonder Wheel students use the wheel in conjunction with a regular yoga practice, CrossFit program, or other fitness regime. They roll for 15-20 minutes per day, before bed, while watching TV, or after a hard workout. This is a great way to use the wheel, and you’ll experience amazing benefits right away.
TROUBLESHOOT YOUR “STIFF” AREAS – many students use the Wonder Wheel to target stiff areas, especially their back, psoas / hip flexors, and glutes. When you press, roll, and release on tight spots, your body naturally turns off its stretch reflex and allows you to increase your mobility safely.
The Wonder Wheel was designed for use in YOGABODY’s professional yoga studios and training centers in Barcelona, Spain, so it’s bigger, stronger, lighter, and backed by an unmatched warranty compared with any other wheel on the market. On top of that, it’s less expensive and comes with a complete at-home DVD so you can get rolling in minutes.

A word of warning. If you’re new to the Wonder Wheel, start slowly and carefully. Even simple-looking postures can be very challenging when the instability and varying surface of the wheel is introduced. It’s easy to push too hard, slip or even fall if you’re not careful—so start slowly, and build your practice and confidence in a steady progression.
“Help increase my back flexibility…”
I’ve only just ordered and received the wonder wheel/blocks and yogi toes but I can see how the wheel will help work different muscles while still engaging in a lot of the same poses and help increase my back flexibility.
“It’s wonderful for backbends…”
I just started using the Wonder Wheel and I love it! It’s wonderful for backbends, and for strengthening my core. It’s a great addition for my yoga practice!
