Even if you have no desire to do wheel pose, (it is a pose that people love to hate, or, they simply hate it!) "Working Towards Wheel Pose" is useful because it demonstrates a methodology for approaching most types of poses.
Part of the process includes learning some basic body awareness and muscle control for the spine, pelvis, hips and shoulder blades. It also shows you how you can use the ground to create a reaction within your body.
The sum total of all of these actions and exercises is:
- to help make it easier to work towards wheel pose.
- You also learn some basic ideas for counterposing.
- And you'll get a better feel for your body.

Making Wheel Pose Easier
One of the inspirations for writing this book was a student telling me that she never used to be able to do wheel pose. But in my class, something I said or something in the way that I taught the pose enabled her to do it.
The tips in this book won't work for everybody. There is some work involved and though the title includes the word "Easier" that doesn't mean that wheel pose will suddenly become easy. However, it will show you how to better feel your body and instead of using a brute force approach the exercises and discussions in this book are designed to help you get better at finessing your way into the pose.
As an option, you can also purchase the Yoga Routine for Body Awareness, Strength and Flexibility video. It includes many of the poses and body awareness exercises includes in the ebook. And it includes wheel pose.
The video can be downloaded in mp4 format or streamed.
