More advanced students can expect to tweak & tighten their arm balances with sublte cues to refine the postures.

More Advanced Arm balances and sequences to execute handstands.  Intermediate students can expect to build strength & refine technique in preparation for more advanced inversions and balances. (Must have 6 month min yoga experience - not appropriate for beginners)

Arm balances are very much about technique and positioning and less about brute strength. Arm balance is all about

shifting body weight correctly. Learning where to lift and where to press are fundamentals of arm balances that will move you off the floor with ease. We will explore the foundation of arm balancing, the technicalities of leaving the ground on our hands and the playful mindset needed to maintain the balance.
