The Wall and wall yoga poses for beginners. Not just an excellent Pink Floyd album or a phrase for exasperation (you drive me up the wall), but a useful yoga prop. Have you ever used the wall to assist your practice? Here are some ideas to get you started with wall yoga poses for beginners.

Wall Yoga Poses for Beginners Benefits

I love this restorative pose.  We can relax our core and back as we reap the benefits for our circulation and metabolism. Move the couch out of the way and swing your legs up the wall!

The wall can be a powerful assist when learning the alignment needed for a handstand or head stand.  It is just simply less scary to be upside down when there is a strong wall behind you!

The wall can assist us in alignment while in forward folds.  It is easy to lean too far back on our heels when in Uttanasana or Prasarita Padottansana.  The wall will push us to line the hips with our heels and get a deeper stretch for the hamstrings.

Yoga is my passion, teaching is my life. I started teaching yoga when my husband entered the US Air Force and now my career travels with me. Every time I move, I look for places to teach and a community of caring yogis who I grow to love and then one day, leave behind. This is a place where we can reconnect and create our yoga together. This site can travel with you. Welcome!
