The Advanced Arm Balances course provides you with an overview of key advanced arm balancing postures taught from an Iyengar perspective. This group of poses typically provokes a range of reactions from students. For some, these asanas can seem impossibly out of reach. It is not unusual for students to feel demoralised. However, if they are taught clearly and incrementally, there is still a lot to be gained from many of the preparatory movements. Then, once some lift-off and balancing is achieved. they can become more enlivening and fun. The ongoing challenge becomes more enjoyable.
These poses promote wrist, arm, chest and abdominal strengthening. If they are performed purely with brute strength this can lead to an exaggerated sense of heaviness. In contrast, a rejuvenating feeling of lightness can arise if the postures are approached with an intelligent use of balance and economy of effort.

It is packed with useful tips for progressing with key arm balances including eka hasta bhujasana, dwi hasta bhujasana, bhujapidasana, tittibhasana and bakasana.
This course will provide you with a foundation for learning key arm balancing postures, using the Iyengar method. Build confidence, strength and resilience as you progress with these advanced asanas.
