Cylindrical Yoga Props

Dharma Yoga Wheel's Back-opening Prop Gently Relieves Tightness and Injury

— July 7, 2015 — Lifestyle
Those looking for relief from poor posture, back pain, tightness or injury often look to back-opening yoga poses. Since it takes time to relax and release the muscles in the back and bring the spine into proper alignment, it helps to deepen backbends with a useful yoga prop like the Dharma Yoga Wheel.

This cylindrical yoga accessory comes in a number of sizes, geared towards people of different heights, skill and flexibility levels. The portable wooden wheel is reinforced with a rubber grip, so that it's easy to pose wherever and have no fear of slipping. In total, the wheel is capable of supporting up to about 270 pounds.

Although ideal for use on the back and shoulders, the prop is also useful as an accessory to strengthen and open other parts of the body.
