I have been practicing and teaching yoga forever!
My attempts at arm balances were boosted when I began using the bandhas. I really did at least one of the three bandhss for fun each time I practiced. They eventually became "assistants" to any inversion pose!
Thanks so much for all your written support!
"maala" is the word for garland and completely different from "mala". Malasana means the pose which eases the passage of stools. Indian toilets have to be used sitting in malasana; without the forward bend :)
Very helpful!!! I can't wait to get going with this advice in my next workout :)
Fantastic article! Yes, it was with a playful approach that I found my arm balances take off. Non-attachment and determination. ;)
Keep up the great articles! Arm balances are sometimes impossible for me, thanks for the advice :)
Absolutely awesome! I love arm balances because I also do capoeira. Its nice to have progressions and tips on balancing. Namaste.
