What is the origin of the wheel?
What are the benefits of the Dharma Wheel?
One of the greatest advantages of the Dharma Yoga Wheel is its ability to reduce back pain and help people with back injuries in their healing process. Because the wheel allows you to stretch out the back while remaining completely supported, relaxing the muscles and aligning the spine, it is a superb tool for increased healing without the danger of injury. The design of the wheel also offers better stability and control than an exercise ball.
The Dharma Yoga Wheel can support up to 270 pounds/122.5 kilograms of weight and is appropriate for individuals with all levels of yoga experience (see recommendations below on how to choose the right wheel for you).
If you are interested in purchasing a Dharma Yoga Wheel, you have three options. Beginners and intermediate yogis are encouraged to try the all-natural wooden wheel, which offers increased mobility and shoulder expansion because of its easy-to-hold wooden lip.
You can also purchase the PVC (plastic) version of the Dharma Yoga Wheel (called the “Basic”) for a cheaper price – and you won’t have to give up the amazing benefits of the wheel. Because this version is slightly bigger than the wooden one, it offers a deeper front stretch – but is still appropriate for beginners or intermediate practitioners.
If you are more advanced in your practice and want an even deeper stretch, choose the “Plus” version of the Yoga Dharma Wheel (also available in either wooden or plastic), which is recommended for individuals who are taller than 6 feet/1.83 meters.
