There are many ways to use the wall in your yoga practice. A wall can be one of the best yoga props to strengthen and/or assist your practice. Typically, the wall is used to practice handstands as those can be scary practicing at first without the security of a wall behind you. However, I have learned that the wall can be used to modify a series of other yoga postures, as well. Here are some of my favorite poses to practice at the wall:
- King Arthur’s Pose
- L-Shaped Handstand
- King Cobra (with shins up the wall)
Here is a great article from Yoga Journal about poses that can be done at the wall.
