This sequence takes an in-depth look at pincha mayurasana (forearm balance). It begins with preparatory variations that strengthen and introduce key concepts. It then explores more advanced methods of refining the full inversion. Eventually it looks at techniques that will help you to free balance in the pose.
Forearm balance can build shoulder mobility and strength.
Pincha mayurasana can be a challenging pose for people with restricted shoulder mobility. For this reason the class also includes shoulder opening variations. It also requires a degree of upper body strength. Many of the preparatory variations of the pose in this class help you to acquire this strength whilst gaining confidence in supporting your body weight on your forearms. Improve shoulder mobility, gain upper body strength and build mental fortitude with this workshop-style forearm balance sequence. Click here to view the video.
