It's arm balance week! You already know that I am a fan of arm balances; the combination of flexibility and strength along with balance and technique can really help focus the mind and wipe away any chatter that followed you onto the mat. And whilst there is a "goal" of sorts, that isn't an invitation to the ego to start up that negative chatter if you don't get as far along as you would like. You'll get there. Advanced postures such as this arm-press pose (bhujapidasana) take time and patience...and lots of practise! If this type of posture floats your boat then all you need to do is try. And try again. And again. And just keep trying and one day it will happen! This discipline to try without being attached to the outcome is a foundation of our yoga practise. Trust the journey; every expert was once a beginner and falling down and getting back up again are how we learn and progress.
And if arm balancing isn't for you - as always the class is full of preparatory postures for the shoulders and hips so you can find an option and a posture to suit how you feel today 😊
