Strong & Sweaty Flow

Vinyasa Flow | By Dice Iida-Klein on Sep 02 2011
In this non-stop practice, we try to incorporate some of my favorite arm balances into one flow. Eka Pada Koundinyasana I & II, Dwi Pada Koundinyasana, Eka Pada Bakasana II (one-footed crow II) and Bakasana (crow/crane pose) make up our arm balances. Lots of core accompanied by a few handstands, as well as some strong flow make this flow a sweaty one! Get your arm balance on my fellow yogis!

    First time catching air in the middle of the room handstand. Definitely will feel this on my surfboard here in NZ tomorrow! Thanks Dice!

    I am a busted-up forty-something mom so I had to stop in the beginning and warm up my wrists, shoulders and lower back then re-start...so be aware it starts strong.
    That being said, this was fantastic with very good preparation for and explanation of each arm balance. I had never tried the eka pada bakasana to eka pada k2 transition and was amazed that it happened effortlessly on one side. So much fun to let go and try something new! Thank you!

      Awesome Juli! Glad to hear you enjoyed the practice.

  • Adriana Flores     Sep 24th, 2013
    Thanks Dice. I "almost" did some things I didn't think I could do. I laughed as I tried. It was fun. Thanks for challenging me!

    • Dice Iida-Klein     Sep 29th, 2013
      You're welcome Adriana :) Doesn't matter if you can "do" certain things. I'm just glad you had fun while trying!

    I second Y Pay. Thank you Dice for your sharing your amazing abilities. Informative, challenging, fun, and inspiring. I feel stronger and more balanced (physically and mentally) everyday. Namaste my friend.
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Mar 19th, 2012
    @Lesley - Y Pays' comment is hilarious. Thank you for always practicing with me. I'm so happy that you're feeling empowered by your handstands. That's what it's all about. More to come!
  • Lesley Peplinskie     Feb 20th, 2012
    I laughed out loud when I read Y Pas' review....but I must say I'm grateful for you too Dice!! Thank you for the always challenging practices. Since practicing mainly with yourself and Katherine since joining last fall, I can now hold handstand (with hang time) in the center of the room. Yea!! It's so empowering, and I have you to thank for your amazing instruction and cues. Love your style. Keep it coming!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Oct 5th, 2011
    @Cristina - Thank you! It's difficult, and of course it doesn't matter if it happens or not, but it is fun to try :)
  • cristina de marchis     Sep 8th, 2011
    Hi! thanks for this class.I do separately Eka Pada Koundinyasana 1&2,dwi pada koundinyasana, but I've never switch from one pose to the other....sooooo difficult but fabulous. I love your sequences. Cristina
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Sep 7th, 2011
    @Y Pays - You are AWESOME! LOL! I'll be sure to relay the message to my 'rents :) Thank you for the kind kind words my friend. Much love to ya!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Sep 7th, 2011
    @Sylvia - You're welcome!!! Glad I could leave you feeling strong and centered. Much love to you my fellow yogi :)
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Sep 7th, 2011
    @Sara - That is what I wanted to hear! I'm so happy you had fun in the practice. Falling is good and necessary for all :) Just gotta get back up!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Sep 7th, 2011
    @Michelle - You're welcome!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Sep 7th, 2011
    @Lisa M. - Nice! So awesome to hear the "handys" are sticking :) Go mom! And seriously, can't dip into the neck. Those shoulders need to stay strong and the balance will become easier!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Sep 7th, 2011
    @Lisa - Thank you. It's always fun to combine the arm balances and keep balancing on your hands. Gotta love it!
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Sep 7th, 2011
    @Patti - Love it! You're quite welcome. Towelasanas are definitely needed in this practice :)
  • Dice Iida-Klein     Sep 7th, 2011
    @Miriam - You're welcome! Greetings to you from sunny California my fellow yogi :) I hope to visit Switzerland in the near future!
  • Y Pays     Sep 6th, 2011
    I am so grateful to you. I am glad your parents met, dated and baked you until you were done. I am glad you were born. Most of all, I am glad you are on yogaglo because there is no one in Dallas Texas with your swag and sequencing. I reckon that no one in the world could teach me to take handstand, chop it on a mirror and snort it first thing before I go out into the crazy 108 degree weather. Thank you, Dice! AND THANK YOU DICE'S MOM AND DAD!
  • Sylvia Garcia     Sep 5th, 2011
    Thanks soooo much Dice! Delicious! Love your sequencing. Feeling strong and centered. Much love.
  • Sara Finley     Sep 5th, 2011
    So much fun! I fell on my bottom several times, but each time with a huge smile. Thanks!
  • Michelle Bentley     Sep 5th, 2011
    Thank you!!!
  • Lisa Martinez     Sep 3rd, 2011
    Held the handstand for a full two seconds...which is a major thing for this mom! Favorite quote, "You don't get to dump into your neck just because you're taking it easy!"
  • Lisa Hagen     Sep 2nd, 2011
    Love ur classes....especially linking arm balances. Dwi Pada to koundinyasana was challenging! Tnx
  • Patti MacPherson     Sep 2nd, 2011
    that was indeed a strong , sweaty flow! Thank you! I had to add in a few "towelasanas" to keep from slipping off my arms in the arm balances :)
