When i first decided to try One-Legged Wheel Pose before 1 year and half, i couldn't even do simple wheel pose. Because of my cripple shoulders and the lack of strength in legs.
In August 2018 i started to work again on Wheel pose. In the end of November, i could do the pose very proper, for a person like me. I could stay in the pose for 5 to 10 sec, with efforts, but rising my leg was impossible. i fall like a sack in the moment i moved my leg. It was obvious that i have train more, especially for hip strength. After 3 months i can stay more than minute and to extend my leg, without problems. But here is where my hands collapse and i cant do good wheel pose. BUT..This is my STARTING POINT to next progress, not like most of social "yoga gurus" said “mistakes, don't do this”. NO! Mistake is when you know how you should do it &/or you can do it in the proper way, but you are doing it still "wrong". People like me - learning alone since they were piece of rock with ZERO flexible past, without opportunity to spend plenty of money for flexibility/contortion coaches, with muscle fibers that are torn, disc hernias and cripple shoulders. For people like us, this is STARTING POINT where OUR BODIES COULD DO THOSE POSES ONLY LIKE THIS! FOR NOW! My first forearm pose - good back flexibility, bad shoulders. And for me, this pose works only if i have wall that is barrier and keep my elbows, while I push my legs. I have so much work, until my upper body is 90 degrees, but im happy that im finally somewhere!
My wheel pose - i can stay longer, it seems after my last try i bend more in my back. The hands are closer to the feet, but elbows are not that straight.
My next little back bend win is Ardha Anuvittasana! With disc hernias this is a killer painful! But i learn how to enter without pain and bend. So, from nowhere to my first real try of the pose, cant wait for next progresses!
