Focus: Balance is the common thread that runs through each of the poses from this class. It features a variety of poses that will help to heighten your sense of balance. The ability to maintain balance in a yoga pose is dependent on input from multiple sensory fields. Whilst balancing we are continually receiving and processing information from our eyes, inner ears and the muscles throughout the whole body. This information helps us to orientate ourselves in space and remain stable whilst moving or remaining still. With practice we are able to improve our sense of balance to the point where we can maintain equilibrium in potentially precarious positions like standing on one one leg in vrksasana or balancing upside down on our heads in sirsasana. This class includes these poses and other balance related asanas.
