Meditation using yoga wheel

I always had problems to find the style of sitting that suited me in meditation.

There are 6 traditional styles of sitting while meditating:

  • Full Lotus
  • Half Lotus
  • Burmese
  • Sitting in a  Chair without using the back support
  • Kneeling on a cushion on its side
  • Kneeling on a Stool.

Important elements in meditation:




-centered balance



Using the Yoga Wheel as you see in the photo, I feel relaxed and  tension free.  My back is not stressed anymore and my legs are relieved from the pain at hip joint caused by my tight hip flexors.

Where can you find a Yoga Wheel?
