  1. Thank you so much for sharing your advice and personal feelings on this pose. I am practicing alone, sometimes my boyfriend is around so he spots me occasionally. I do feel flexible enough in both shoulders and arms, and I feel my wrists and forearms are strong enough.. Maybe it's a mental block that's holding me back. When I do actually manage to push up (with help) it feels sort of unnatural (?) even though I would love to feel comfortable in the pose. I guess I just have to work on strengthening and lengthening (even more!) but am determined to master the pose.
  2. Hi! I am new to the YBC forum, and started practicing yoga a year or more ago. I am having trouble pressing into wheel pose. My back is quite flexible and I know I have the strength (I go to the gym regularly and lift weights) however something is preventing me from pressing into wheel pose. The furthest I get is resting the top of my head on the mat and I just can't go any further. I am trying my best not to get frustrated.. any tips are greatly appreciated!
