Effective Yoga Wheel Poses for Runners (YogDev Review)

The Yoga Wheel for Runners

This post is sponsored by YogDev. I was also provided with a YogDev Yoga Wheel for the purposes of review. All opinions are my own.

When I first heard about the yoga wheel, I thought, “Ok, that’s cool, but how does it apply to me? I am a runner, and I do yoga just fine. Aren’t yoga wheels for those that need major modifications or are REALLY good at yoga? I mean, I adore yoga, as you all know, but I am not as much of a yogi as I used to be (remember the summer of hot yoga?).”

Ok, so I got into a bit of a conversation with myself. Don’t act like you don’t. 

Then I looked into the yoga wheel poses, and I realized how many of them would be so beneficial for runners. I knew that these would be excellent for myself and my clients.

Balance and Stability The yoga wheel is dynamic and forces you to work in your poses, but the yoga wheel also offers a chance for stability as a prop in certain poses. This allows you to work up to hands-free poses (like standing bow/dancer), which improve the stability and proprioception (awareness) in your ankles and feet.

Alignment and Symmetry The yoga wheel is not built for 2 feet to be on it at the same time. Consequently, as you practice your poses on either side, you will be able to determine asymmetry and imbalances on either side of your body and work towards correcting them. Remember my unilateral core and glute exercises for runners?

Hidden Core Work Introducing instability, getting further into poses, working on either side of your body, and the dynamic nature of the wheel means that your core is always in action. No rest for the wicked!

Enhanced Stretches The yoga wheel bypasses our mental blocks and helps us relax and gently roll forward (or backward) into poses. 

Of course, there are a myriad of other benefits offered by the yoga wheel (from spinal alignment during backbends to inversion assistance), but these are the benefits that I think most interest runners. So, how do we achieve those benefits and use the yoga wheel? Try out these yoga wheel poses that stretch and develop your running body (and are accessible for those who are regular practitioners of yoga as well as those who haven’t dabbled all the much).

    I have heard a lot about yoga wheels but havent used one. They look fun. Currently I have a couple yoga blocks which help me in poses like half moon to really open up. My hamstrings are always tight and I love your use of the wheel for sugarcane as that is a tough pose for me. Also the forward fold which I think of as similar to using a bolster but with the wheel you can work to slowly move forward.

    Recently I’ve loved just lifting my leg onto a counter/chair/etc and stretching out my hamstrings. That is the best thing on earth right now. This yoga wheels looks like it could help a ton too though.

      Oh, I love that, too! This is a good way to progress, and to do so gently.

    The only prop I ever use when stretching is a chair. My legs definitely need the most stretching.

    Must admit this is the first time I’m seeing a yoga wheel. Think it’s cool and love all your pics so much that I pinned the post. I’m at the Sunday Fitness and Food Link-up #44 with “Zucchini Lasagna That’s Easy, Tasty, and Nutritious” and “Self-care Activities to Encourage Optimal Health.” Hope you’ll check them out. Be well and Many Blessings, Nancy Andres

    I want one of these yoga wheels so bad! I need to focus more on stretching. I do love using yoga straps for stretching and getting deeper into poses.
