10 Reasons You Should Try Yoga Wall

November 25, 2018

Rope walls and yoga walls allow for deeper poses. Yoga Wall is based on BKS Iyengar’s rope wall. All yoga practitioners can thank BKS Iyengar for most of our yoga props, like blocks, and straps.  Iyengar Yoga is alignment based and the straps used on the yoga wall help practitioners to stay safely aligned. The yoga wall assists people who are stiff or who have difficulty holding poses. It provides stability and security and increases body awareness. Practicing yoga on the yoga wall strengthens and tones muscles and releases tight areas.

Here are 10 reasons you should give it a try!

1. Gain New Perspectives on Yoga

Yoga wall allows you to feel and experience your yoga practice in a new way. When using the yoga wall, your practice becomes more vertical. You can even experience inversions you’ve never tried before and literally see the world upside down!

2. Deepen the Practice

The yoga wall allows students to explore poses and take them deeper. Just like doing Half Moon against the wall allows you not to worry about your balance do you can concentrate on opening your hips, yoga wall allows you to take poses deeper and open in different ways. Down dog becomes about making space in your spine and stretching your hamstrings instead of holding yourself up with your arms. Deepening your yoga practice is amazing!

3. Sustain the Asana

Holding poses longer allows the body to settle into them. It also your to really feel which muscles are working and which are stretching. It allows your to focus on your breath and quiet your noisy mind. Since the yoga wall supports a lot of the body weight, students can stay in poses longer and really feel them!

4. Anchor the Pose and Expand Movement

Doing poses on the yoga wall allows students to feel anchored in the pose. With the side of the back foot against the wall in Warrior 2, the student feels anchored and uses the back leg more fully. Feeling this on the wall, teaches students to use those muscles in their Warrior 2 in regular yoga classes as well.

5. Feel Better in Your Body

Since yoga wall allows you to stretch deeper and strengthen muscles you don’t normally use, you feel better in your body when you leave yoga wall class. It’s great to feel juicy for hours after class!

6. Experience Near Weightlessness

The yoga wall supports your weight so you get to feel like you’re floating, much like aerial yoga.  You can stretch and move like never before!

7. Increase Muscle Strength

Yoga wall helps with balance, which allows you to concentrate on using your muscles effectively.  You get stronger when you practice poses you may not normally be able to practice.

8. Strengthen Different Muscle Groups

If you are already practicing lots of yoga, yoga wall allows you to try out using different muscle groups than you might normally use.  This allows you to strengthen those lesser used groups!

9. Improve Flexibility

Since you don’t need to worry about supporting all of your body weight, you can focus on increasing your flexibility.  Yoga Wall is practiced with alignment in mind to help keep you safe as you increase your flexibility.

10. Improve Spine Health

The yoga wall acts as traction for your spine, allowing discs to safely move back into place by releasing compression between the vertebra.  It feels so good!

Find your way to a yoga wall workshop, class, or private lesson and feel better today!

  1. I have a connective tissue disease and have severe pain and tightness in my muscles and soreness in my joints. Because of my condition I haven’t done much physical exercise in years so my muscles have become weaker. I’d love to try yoga as it seems like it would help. I would love to try one private session with the wall or whatever method you think would be best. Is there anyway you could lower the price for one private lesson so I can see if this would benefit me?

I’ve been practicing yoga with Rhonda at Daisy Studio for over two years. She is an awesome teacher that takes the time to understand what your goals are and helps you to be your best self. Rhonda connects with her students on a personal level, getting to know each student by talking individually to understand what we feel are our limits. As with any great teacher, she helps you to surpass your walls and achieve more physical and mental strength. —Joelle


Since I have started yoga at Daisy Studio, my life has changed. I participate in two classes each week that work on balance, stretching, and strength. I feel so much better and have improved in all of these areas. Rhonda is great at focusing on individual needs as requested. She is also helpful in working out scheduling conflicts. Can't imagine not doing yoga!!! Thank you Rhonda! —S.C.


I love Yoga at Daisy Studio. I feel very comfortable and love seeing everyone in person and on Zoom. Overall I feel much better after Yoga. Learning how to stretch to benefit the various joints has helped me immensely. As I age, I notice that I am more flexible and have great range of motion. I love it! —Susan

I have been with Rhonda over 5 years doing Yoga. She not only is an awesome yoga teacher but a great friend as well. She is always there to help anyone in any condition to strengthen your body. Some may think yoga is too hard for me from past experience but Rhonda is always there, very concerned, about how to do yoga the way YOUR body can do it. She is uplifting in her attitude towards each student. If you haven't tried yoga, or maybe you have in the past, I highly recommend you take a class from Rhonda and see how amazing your body will feel and also thank you for taking such good care of your body, at any age! —Debbie


Rhonda is the most wonderful teacher. She is patient, kind and caring and is always helpful in adapting poses to match abilities. The studio is a happy cheerful space. I wouldn’t be able to be as mobile and flexible as I am without my Daisy yoga. —Joy


I have attended classes at Daisy studio in person and online for several years. I really enjoy the "yoga chill" class. It's a good combination of stretching and active (not too active) poses. Rhonda offers alternatives for poses in many cases - both more and less intense. I consider Daisy yoga to be part of my wellness routine, to be a key part of my goal to remain active and mobile as I age. Rhonda welcomes all and her friendly approach makes both in person and online class pleasant. —Peggy

Daisy Yoga is an awesome yoga studio. The instructor is the best I have ever practiced under. She structures her classes to meet the participants abilities and will always help modify a pose to make it work for you. She installs confidence and encourages her students to do things they never thought possible. If you are looking for a yoga studio, I highly recommend Daisy Yoga. —Amy

Wanted to give a big 5 star WOOHOO shout out to Daisy Yoga! I Started back my yoga practice when it was “Covid safe” again. Taking time away made me realize how much I missed it and NEED it. Rhonda is a great and caring instructor. She’s so helpful in assisting you with the poses and explaining other positions for your individual needs. I always feel so much better when I leave her studio. Highly recommend Daisy Yoga! —Susan
