Anonymous asked: lol ignore my submission from 2 seconds ago! I meant only to ask a question. Here it is: Do you have any tips on how to transition into the forearm wheel pose? I'd rather not do it from a forearm balance. I tried to do it from traditional wheel pose, but I can't seem to figure out what to do with my hands. Any help would be greatly appreciated =]
I typically see people do this by walking their feet closer to their hands. Then you have an easier time dropping to your elbows.
This girl (youtube) kind of overkills it (I mean, she has amazing openness in her shoulders and chest). I’m just sayin you dont have to walk back that far …
But a great example of how I typically see people do it.
If you don’t feel comfortable lowering the elbows, try the legs. You do the same thing. Walk closer to your hands. Then I bend one leg so that my toe is pointing towards my hands, basically (that is, the top of toes would “click” on the floor) and see if I can get a shin to the mat. (or people just skip the wheel pose and go straight here from doing a backbend from camel).
I mean, it can be a HUGE jump from wheel to wheel with the elbows and/or knees to the mat!
There are other ways (partner assist or wheel prep on your head and just drop your elbows are the two I’m thinking of) but these are the easiest to explain (or that I could find a youtube of!).
Disclaimer: the first rule of yoga is Dont Be Stupid. So if you’re not there yet, dont break your neck trying it. Watch your ego; respect your body. fuckyeahyoga is not responsible for dumbassery.
