Best Yoga Wheels for Support
Want to improve flexibly? Ease into those difficult poses safely? Relive aching and sore muscles?
And, do all of this whilst using a prop that is designed to help prevent injury? Then you – young yogi – are in need of a yoga wheel.
I first heard these fantastic wheels described as ‘scaffolding for the body’ and I have yet to find a better way to put it. They are great for backbends, can help you turn a press up into a full handstand and are brilliant for perfecting forearm stands.
A wheel is a great addition to a session, regardless of your level of experience. Let’s roll out a couple:
Diameter: 33cm | Width: 12.7cm | Weight: 1.5kg
A lovely looking yoga wheel with an outer layer of natural cork.
This wheel lets you fully stretch out your body with the confidence that the anti-sweat, anti-skid cork will have you covered.
It is made from high-quality materials and can withstand weights of over 225kg!
It comes with a handy storage bag with an adjustable strap which means you can easily carry this along with the rest of your kit.
• Great looking cork design
• Difficult to clean
Diameter: 33cm | Width: 13cm | Weight: 1.58kg
A space-age design that will stand out in the studio.
This is a wheel that is ideal for beginners that feel they need a little more support in the studio.
It comes in three funky designs – cosmic cork and palm (choose the cosmic if you want something a little different!)
It is coated in a grippy, non-slip foam and provides solid but comfortable support.
It is great for opening up your back, chest and shoulders and feels soft between your shoulder blades.
• Great choice of designs
• Soft comfortable foam
• Quite bulky
Diameter: 33.5cm | Width: 13.5cm | Weight: 998g
A premium wheel that will take your practice and poses to the next level.
This wheel comes with a handy posture guide – which is very helpful for first-time wheelers!
It is coated in sleek looking, luxurious natural cork which is padded, patterned and stained a luxurious black mandala.
It is sweat-resistant and has a great grip and does not have that toxic small you sometimes get with cheaper wheels.
