I have been attempting to do Chakrasana for a few years. Maybe once every 2-3 months I would try just to see. I would always get stuck at the spot where I could almost flip over. For a long time I was sure that I should be able to do it but it just never happened. I am sure a good teacher would have been very helpful.  Yesterday I managed to do it. It was actually embarrassing. I ended up in Chaturanga just like is suppose to happen, just like it was nothing. It seemed so easy – struggling for so long when it is this easy?

If anyone thinks of trying it there is a serious neck injury warning with the pose. Apparently some people attempt use their neck as a lever to flip themselves over. Ouch!

Thank you for your kind words.

When I was starting in yoga I would see a difficult pose and say to myself that I will never be able to do that. A long time ago I stopped saying that. I learned that if I just keep practicing it all happens eventually.

The next step is Viparita Chakrasana :lol: I have some doubts about that one. I have a whole lot of doubts about that one:)

Well, I FINALLY figured out what I was doing wrong. Since my first post there have been some times when I wasn't able to do Chakrasana. All of sudden I would change from doing it very easily to not able to do it at all. And then do it again. My hands were too much above my shoulders closer to my ears. I noticed that if my hands were slightly outside my shoulders, a little more towards my feet I could go over like nothing. It wasn't much of a change but that tiny little change makes all the difference.
