This Week~ July 15, 2013 Yoga Sutra 1.5 with Arm Balancing Poses

Join us this week to develop core strength, keep your bones sturdy and sharpen your mental discipline with a focus on Arm Balancing poses via proper alignment and Yoga Sutra 1.5.

 Some Benefits of Arm Balances

Arm Balances require both strength and flexibility. They require weight bearing on the arms which builds bone density and muscle which prevents osteoporosis as well as building upper body strength. They also help strengthen the balance reflexes to prevent falls. Arm Balances strengthen the abdominal muscles as most balance poses require abdominal strength to support and stabilize the center of your body. The abdominal muscles must contract even more strongly to lift the weight of your pelvis and legs off the floor in some of the arm balance poses. Mentally Arm Balances are the perfect poses to practice persistence in the face of challenge, as well as non-attachment to the fruits of your labors.

Yoga Sutra 1.5 as our class theme will support us in our yoga practice focusing on Arm Balances!

Om Shanti & See You In Class~
