Sure, a grippy mat and comfortable, fashionable tights are nonnegotiables when you walk into a yoga studio, but you might not realise that one unique tool could take your practice to the next level. We’re talking about the Dharma Yoga Wheel.

This revolutionary yoga wheel is specifically designed to match the contour of the spine to help stretch and release tension and muscular tightness in the back, chest, shoulders, abdomen and hip flexors. It can make backbends more accessible 
to beginners, and can even help advanced yogis deepen their pose or loosen up muscle stiffness.

“I’ve been trialling the Dharma Wheel for a few weeks now, and I’m seriously impressed. Not only is it a great tool for opening up my back safely and comfortably, but it’s improved my core strength as well. I normally roll over the top or it or if I want to amp up my practice I’ll even balance on it in a yoga pose,” says Bianca Cheah.

So, if you want to improve your flexibility, release tension, stretch safely or take your practice to the next (challenging!) level, this super cool yoga prop could be for you.
