One of the more difficult categories of yoga postures for some yogis is arm balances, which involves bringing the feet off the ground while keeping the palms down and the hands and wrists engaged. Certain types of postures such as these may be intense at first, but as demonstrated in this video, eventually the postures will be achieved more through balance instead of strength. Arm balances can be beneficial to anyone with weak wrists or carpal tunnel syndrome, and some may find practicing arm balances without clothes to be more beneficial because contact between arms and legs will be on skin only, never on fabric.
In this video you will learn: Bakasana (Crow Pose), Parsva Bakasana (Side Crow Pose), and Aṣṭāvakrāsana (“Crazy Eight” Arm Balance).
