Arm Balance Workshop Series
Sundays, 3/17, 3/24, & 3/31
BENEFITS OF ARM BALANCES:
Arm Balances have several benefits in a regular yoga practice. They encourage confidence and create a sense of fun and playfulness. The challenges presented in developing an arm balance practice are both physical and mental. Overcoming the stories that we tell ourselves such as, “I’m not strong enough,” “I’m too old,” “I’m too overweight,” etc. is an essential element of the practice. As in all of yoga the journey is much more important than the destination and there is no end point, no ultimate pose; there is simply the process of overcoming fear and uncertainty and discovering power and strength. The physical benefits of an arm balance practice are important as well. Arm balances are weight-bearing exercises and as such are particularly good for maintaining bone density. They also build and maintain core and upper body strength. Body awareness or proprioception is often more essential to the ability to do an arm balance than physical strength. The understanding of where to place the body will create “ease” in the pose and that body intelligence is transferable to many other areas as well.
