Tracey's energy and smile make this class a pure joy, particularly when it takes you into the full pose, wheel posture (chakrasana), also known as upward facing bow pose (urdva dhanurasana). We hope that you will appreciate the gradual, progressive nature of this class and how safe and effective this approach can be. Your spine is delicate, so the gentle opening is a nice way to move into a deep backbend. If you're new to wheel, we recommend that you start with the first class in this series: Wheel Pose: Open the Heart.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa/Power Yoga

Both these classes are great, thank you Tracey! I have really been enjoying learning the Wheel. I'm not very graceful with it yet, but I can really feel my heart centre opening. Would love to know more about it

What a great two part practice for full wheel. Tracey's instructions and discussion during practice are so helpful and you will find new ways to perform wheel. I will return to this practice often.

Precise yet relaxed instruction. Gonna use as inspiration to my february heart-opening classes. Enormous gratitude and respect for you Tracey.

Thank you, Tracey, great class that gets right to those sticky spots in the shoulders/arms/hips and great series on wheel pose!

I’ve been intentionally working on wheel, mostly because I want to improve my wheel and build strength. I’ve never had a flexible back and wheel has always felt particularly difficult for me. However, I love this flow and I felt that wheel was easier this time around, given the warm up all the way up to the final pose. Thank you Tracy! Your gentle spirit and mindful choreography made this so enjoyable :)

Smooth practice that was engaging, challenging, relaxing and fun all in one. Great stuff and I always cringe when I hear wheel pose because it’s hard for me. Can’t wait to come back. Thanks Tracy!! Keep being awesome

Compact, all-around stretch and flow leading to wheel. Nicely paced, modifications offered, and great cues. I was able to (sort of) comfortably get into wheel x 2. Still not an easy pose for me, but I didn't feel the usually pinching and "uh-oh!" sensations. Long-ish stretch for the hamstrings/groin/IT band just prior to savasana. Thank you, Tracey!

This class was a great gradual way into wheel pose. I have done full wheel before but it's been awhile. However, the biggest, and unexpected challenge was sitting on tucked toes for so long! My entire legs to toes were burning and I had to take more than one break! Otherwise, great class.
