A yoga wheel, also known as a dharma wheel or a back roller, is a circular prop that is used in yoga practice to enhance flexibility, balance, strength, and alignment. It's typically made from a sturdy material like PVC or ABS plastic and is covered with a layer of cushioning foam for comfort. Yoga wheels come in various sizes and are used for a variety of poses and exercises. Here's more about their design, benefits, and usage:

Design and Features:

  1. Circular Shape: The yoga wheel is designed in the shape of a circle, resembling a larger version of a wagon wheel. This shape allows for various movements and poses to be supported.

  2. Size Variations: Yoga wheels come in different diameters. The size you choose may depend on your height, flexibility, and the specific exercises you plan to perform.

  3. Foam Padding: The outer surface of the yoga wheel is usually covered with a layer of foam padding. This provides comfort and support, especially when using the wheel for stretches and poses that involve backbends.

  4. Weight Capacity: Different yoga wheels have different weight capacities. Be sure to choose a wheel that can support your weight comfortably.

Benefits and Usage:

  1. Backbends and Spine Stretching: The primary use of a yoga wheel is to assist with backbends and spine stretches. Placing the wheel under the back while lying on it can help open up the chest and shoulders, and stretch the front of the body.

  2. Flexibility and Mobility: Yoga wheels can help improve flexibility by gently allowing you to move deeper into stretches, especially in areas such as the shoulders, hips, and spine.

  3. Balance and Core Strength: Incorporating the yoga wheel into balancing poses and core exercises can challenge your stability and core strength as you engage various muscle groups to maintain your balance.

  4. Inversions and Arm Balances: Some practitioners use the yoga wheel as a prop to assist with inversions and arm balances, providing support and leverage.

  5. Massage and Self-Myofascial Release: Rolling the yoga wheel along the spine, thighs, calves, and other areas can provide a gentle massage and help release tension in the muscles and fascia.

  6. Variety of Poses: Yoga wheels can be used in various poses, including bridge pose, camel pose, plank variations, and more.


  1. Experience Level: Yoga wheels can be beneficial for practitioners of all levels, but some poses and exercises may be more challenging for beginners. Start with basic poses and gradually progress as you become more comfortable.

  2. Support and Alignment: When using a yoga wheel, it's important to maintain proper alignment and not force your body into uncomfortable positions. Use the wheel to gently enhance your practice, not to strain or overstretch.

  3. Consult a Professional: If you have any existing injuries, medical conditions, or concerns, it's a good idea to consult a yoga instructor or healthcare professional before incorporating a yoga wheel into your practice.

A yoga wheel can be a versatile and effective prop to add to your yoga practice, helping you explore new stretches, improve flexibility, and enhance your overall well-being. As with any yoga prop, listen to your body and use the wheel mindfully to achieve the best results. Wall thickness:10mm
