Yoga wheel pose improves core strength
Fitness enthusiasts have been encouraged to try the Yoga pose ’wheel’ - also known as the Chakrasana - on their Yoga mats in order to improve their overall fitness levels.
According to celebrity Yoga trainer Subodh Gupta, the challenging Yogasana pose, in which the body is arched back and supported on the palms and soles of the feet, is one of the most effective ways of increasing the strength of the upper body.
It is also an ideal way to develop the flexibility and strength of the spine and helps inspire a feeling of vitality and suppleness.
Yoga practitioners who use the wheel will also find that it strengthens the upper back, arms, shoulders, wrists, buttocks, thighs and abdomen.
According to Mr Gupta, the pose can also have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system, the thyroid and pituitary glands, as well as the glandular, digestive, respiratory and nervous systems.
In addition to helping improve physical wellbeing, it is also an excellent method of increasing spiritual wellbeing and acts as a counterbalance to depression, Mr Gupta maintained.
However, although the wheel pose is a healthy and moderately safe exercise method, prospective practitioners were urged to exercise caution.
It is not recommended for anyone with weak wrists, sufferers of back pain or those that have experienced back injury. Pregnant women are also advised against assuming the yoga pose wheel.
Those who have any doubts or concerns about their suitability to practice the wheel pose were advised to consult their doctors in the first instance.
Writing in the Huffington Post, screenwriter and children’s author Patricia Rust recently announced that Yoga meditation has helped to improve their concentration levels and has enabled her to put her life in perspective.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
