Continuous Arm Balance Practice

Vinyasa Flow | By Elena Brower on Mar 20 2012
This continuous arm balance practice focuses on one detail; broadening your collarbones to soften and inhabit your heart. Each time you broaden your collarbones, feel your heart emerge, open, expand and get softer; this allows you to receive and ground energy to support you in your arm balances. A full range of poses from Pincha Mayurasana all the way to Eka Pada Koundinyasana II, with Vashistha variations and a few other fun surprises. Return to this one to play and chart your progress.

    this is so loving. thank you. i have struggled in my own practice with arm balances for years - perhaps more psychologically than physically! but this is so fun, so playful and approachable - and right on - definitely coming back to this one. much thanks.

    Elena,mI love arm balances, can do most of these. But your words to always return to the heart, your soft voice, change the high energy from these and turn it to love, so it is energetic soft compassion. I can't even articulate what I mean, so I'll just say you have such a way about you that I come away feeling softer, better, kinder. Wonderful practice!

    Beautiful :) I fell a few times but felt great in the process and can see it being like you said - a place to play and view progress. Feeling especially open now. Love having your voice guide me xoxo

    Thank you so much, this class leaves you feeling enormously peaceful. I don't know what I would do without yogaglo as I live far away from civilisation and yoga classes in Oyster Bay in South Africa. Thank you Elena
