Arm Balances – Weekly Advanced Class 31

Join To Start Course

Focus

 This 30 minute class focusses exclusively on arm balances. You are guided through six of these challenging, yet energising poses. Arm balances are strengthening poses on both a physical and mental level. They help to build confidence and impart a sense of lightness to the body. Wrists, arms, chests and abdominal muscles are all toned by these poses.

Arm balances require you to support your full body weight with your arms. The class begins with chaturanga and vasisthasana where your feet remain on the floor, and progresses to poses such as tittibhasana and bhujapadasana where your feet are taken completely off the floor.

Each of the arm balances in this video are explored in detail with step by step instructions. Preparatory stages are included for the benefit of students who are newer to these poses.
