yoga pose of the week: wheel

Happy Tuesday all!

Today is the first of many similar posts to come. Every week or so, I will be posting my yoga pose of the week. It’ll be a yoga pose I’m either really enjoying or really struggling with. Today I’m going to start light, with one of my favourite poses: wheel!
Wheel, or urdhva dhanurasana, is a back bend which strengthens the arms, wrists, abdomen, legs, butt, and spine. It also opens the chest and lungs, stimulating the pituitary and thyroid, leading to feelings of vitality and energy… and it’s just plain fun! This pose reminds me of being a kid and doing gymnastics in my bathing suit in my grandpa’s backyard. Joy! 🙂
