Does something called a ‘Yoga Wheel’ sound familiar to you?

Well, a few months ago here in Spain, we weren’t sure what it was either; however, the Yoga Wheel is finally arriving to the peninsula, and it’s coming in at full force.

Okay, great. So now we know that such a thing as a ‘Yoga Wheel’ exists, but that doesn’t take away our doubt of what is it used for.

El uso del Vayu Yoga Wheel

So without further ado, we present the Vayu Yoga Wheel which will allow you to experience first hand all the benefits that a Yoga Wheel has to offer.

Vayu Yoga Wheel is Barcelona’s Yoga Wheel, handmade within the city limits. It is used to assist in stretching the entirety of the spine and also open the area of the chest, abdomen, hip flexors, and shoulders. The Vayu Yoga Wheel is designed especially to adapt to the contourn of the spine, and the good news is that you don’t have to be a yoga practitioner nor flexible to be able to benefit from it. Vayu Yoga Wheel is made so that everyone – from advanced practitioners all the way to those who are on day one – can benefit from the wheel. Using it regularly can help you to gain flexibility, build strength, and work on balance and mobility, all at the same time.

In other words, the Vayu Yoga Wheel is a revolutionary yoga prop that won’t stop rolling out surprises, no matter which way you use it.

And how is it that a Yoga Wheel can assist us with so many things? How do you use it?

Well, we don’t want to say that using it is a piece of cake, but basically to reap the most basic benefits of the wheel it is exactly that; a piece of cake.

We can begin to have a healthier spine from our very first moment with the wheel. The only thing that we have to do is stretch ourselves out on top of it, face up, and slightly lifting up the hips, we move back and forth, rolling up and down on the wheel, massaging the entirety of the spine.

¿Qué es la Vayu Yoga Wheel?

It’s a very simple gesture that people of all ages can do. There’s no trick to it at all, and you don’t have to get yourself tied up in a knot trying to figure out how to use it. More than not, you can now easily undo all the knots and muscular tension that you already have.

Think of the Yoga Wheel as a way to undo the endless amount of hours that we spend hunched in front of the computer, looking at our phones, driving, carrying around the kids, etc.

All of the pressure that we put on our backs doing regular common day activities, we can now begin counteracting them through a few simple minutes spent each day using the Vayu Yoga Wheel. And you can go at your own pace and dedicate the time to it that you want. Try rolling on the wheel in the morning when you first get up, in the middle of the day on your overly long lunch break, before going to the gym, or even right before going to bed.

The Vayu Yoga Wheel has endless uses and here we’re just scratching the surface on all the possibilities of what you can do with the wheel. However, like we said before, taking the first step towards having a healthier spine is now as simple as trying the Vayu Yoga Wheel.…
