One-Legged Wheel Pose

The One-Legged Wheel Pose, also known as Eka Pada Urdhva Dhanurasana, is an advanced backbending yoga posture that adds an extra dimension of challenge and depth. To practice this pose, begin lying on your back with your knees bent and feet hip-distance apart. Place your hands beside your head, fingers pointing towards your shoulders. As you exhale, press into your hands and feet, lifting your hips and chest off the mat into a Bridge Pose. Then, extend one leg straight up towards the ceiling. Root down through your hands and the other foot for support, engaging your core and glutes. The raised leg points upwards, parallel to the extended hip. This pose requires both back flexibility and strength, offering a stretch to the front body and a lift through the chest. The One-Legged Wheel Pose demands practice and proper alignment. Breathe deeply as you hold the pose, and as you exhale, gently lower down to release. It’s important to approach this pose with patience and preparation, as well as guidance from an experienced yoga instructor to prevent strain and ensure a safe and balanced practice.
