Take Flight – An Arm Balance Workshop

Take Flight – An Arm Balance Workshop

Event Details


For many yogis, arm balances can seem a little scary and completely unattainable.

They do, in fact, require lots of core strength, balance and focus. But wait! Don’t write them off just yet! Remember, it’s called a yoga “practice” for a reason. As with many aspects of yoga, the ability to nail arm balances will come with time, patience and, yes, practice, practice, practice. In this workshop, we’ll focus on just a few things that will lead you to adding arm balances into your practice.

Foundational Postures

Many of the foundational postures — Chaturanga, Plank, Downward Dog, etc. — will help you develop the arm /shoulder strength, core stamina and balance that you’ll need for arm balances. Hip openers (think Pigeon) also play a vital role in advancing in arm balances.

Engage your core, stare, and BREATHE!

We say this so often in class, but in any arm balance, it’s critical. Remember to pull your belly button to your spine, draw the low rib in, stare ahead, and breathe steadily.

As the Crow Flies

Crow Pose (Bakasana) is an excellent posture to prepare you for more advanced arm balances. We’ll also explore approaches to Firefly Pose (Tittibhasana), Shoulder-Pressing Pose (Bhujapidasana), Scale Pose (Tolasana), and Pose Dedicated to the Sage Koundinyasa (Eka Pada
Koundinyasana).
