Arm Balance Emphasis

In this well-rounded class, you’ll explore four arm balances: eka hasta bhujasana (elephant's trunk pose), eka pada koundinyasanana (flying split), vasisthasana (side plank), and bhujapidasana (shoulder press pose).

You’ll begin with a hip-opening warm-up. After that, you’ll move into a sequence where you’ll weave together deep hip openers and the arm balances. This will help you gain strength as well as a greater understanding of these arm balances, which are the foundation for many others.
