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.
