This class focuses exclusively on pincha mayurasana (forearm balance). The class begins with a strengthening sequence of movements that help to create a solid foundation for the pose. The poses that follow work on acquiring the shoulder mobility that is necessary for pincha mayurasana. You then work with variations that explore the basic techniques of the arms and shoulders without being in the full inversion. When you eventually get to the full pose your focus is on maintaining shoulder lift and avoiding lower back compression. The last section of the class explores ways of approaching the free balance in pincha mayurasana.
