This fun, fluid, and functional class from Senior Intermediate Iyengar teacher Carrie Owerko can help build arm strength. It begins with an active and thorough warm-up on the floor then playfully progresses to standing poses and arm balances. Not feeling up to a full arm balance? Not to worry. Carrie provides options for Marichyasana 1 and Marichyasana III using a chair.
