A wall can be used in a number of different ways in your Yoga practice.

For Asanas, you can use a wall to create leverage, balance, support, and resistance in your poses and to perform strengthening and flexibility exercises.

In addition to Asana assistance, a wall can also be used in other limbs of your practice as well. You can, for example, use a wall for Dharana, Dhyana, and even Pratyahara practice with a bit of creativity.

What are some creative ways that you can incorporate a wall into your practice today?

Coming up with a few ideas is a great way to ensure that you fully take advantage of this often-overlooked boon that is always freely available for you to integrate into your Yoga routine.

Here Are A Few Ideas To Get You Started (Click Here To See Some Examples)

Upper body stretches against the wall
