{Edited from the original pose of Wheel – Chakrasana. If you feel you can handle it, try to arch your belly toward the ceiling and bring your hands closer to your feet, thus entering into wheel pose.}

5: Flowering lotus – Vikasitakamalasana***

    #1 & 2: Not too bad. It’s tough on the upper thigh and calves, but it’s good.
    #3: I’m going to have to rearrange these because doing boat after warrior 1 is wicked hard. If you bend your knees and support your feet it’s easier though.
    #4: I’m going to be removing wheel and replacing it with something else. I don’t know what yet, but this is a very advanced pose, and unlike most of the other poses, you can’t just guess how to get into it. I knew that there were going to have to be modifications along the way, and this is one of them.
    #5: It took a little bit to figure out how to do it, but I actually got it and held it for about two straight minutes. It’s weird and you’ve got to be able to maintain balance on your butt bones, but it’s kind of a good one.

    I edited this post and day 25 to remove wheel and replace it with reverse tabletop. If you have the strength and flexibility, you can modify reverse tabletop into wheel pose using the steps noted under the image.
