Arm balance postures fascinate lots of people, this shows arm strength and above all the grace of standing in the arms and hands and not in the feet and legs as usual. The idea of an arm balance posture is connected the most to a handstand, in which the body is in an upside-down vertical position.
In this class, we gonna see the different sides of this practice and what could be used to help a fast improvement to get to stay in their own hands. How to protect the hand joins, how to improve the strength of the arms, how to manage to lift the legs up, the use of different supports, and of course, may asanas with variations of arm balance category, like Kakasana (Crow), Ekapada Galavasana (Flying Pigeon), Tittibhasana (Firefly Pose), Astavakrasana (Eight Angle Pose) and many others.
Is important for me to say that, once Asanas are part of Yoga practice, and Yoga has a holistic approach to life, the work on arm balance postures also requires the whole body and mind to work together. After starting, it will not take too long to see the arm balance postures targeting other body parts as just hands and arms, the core, back or lower back, legs, and shoulders will be requested to be well developed for many of us.
Beginners and non-beginners can attend this class, and at least the blocks gonna be used, if you are those who prefer to use props, I hope you have greater strength and flexibility, if that is not the case, be open to using props, they are in the Studios to help your development.
The Challenge in this class is to perform the postures as it is thought, don’t get hurt thanks to your enthusiasm with the arm balance postures, and above all, develop the necessary skills to master at least five of them.
