This progression will ensure the whole body is open and fluid before you advance into the deeper back-bending sessions. By working through the series you will have a solid foundation upon which to expand into your own practice.

Themes to consider throughout the practice:

1. You are developing a relationship with the wheel. We all have structural and skeletal differences and proportions, areas of tightness, weakness and strength. We also have many emotional and energetic obstructions in the body. Therefore it is imperative that you establish an intimate connection to the wheel so you can observe and move through what your body and emotional disposition is presenting.

2. If you do not develop this intimate relationship you can injure yourself very quickly.

3. Which brings me to safety:

– Work slowly

– Work mindfully and with curiosity

– Connect with your breath to relax, release and respond

– Recruit and integrate the use of your legs

– Take some time to acclimate to the wheel, and learn how to use it.

4. The wheel provides a myriad of benefits:

– back, shoulder and chest opening

– quad/ hip flexor and psoas line stretches

– It may trick you into some core work.

The fundamentals series will enhance your body awareness as you develop a relationship with the wheel by relaxing the inner body and awakening the outer body.

Practice with love…
