Pause & Pose: One-Legged Arm Balance

One-Legged Arm Balance

Eka Pada Koundinyasana II

Level 3

Benefits: Eka Pada Koundinyasana requires strength, courage, and a sense of adventure. This arm balance tones your belly and spine while strengthening your arms and wrists.

Honest Tip: To get up and stay up you have to reach your heart forward while you stretchΒ your legs away from the midline of your body. When you reach your heart forward, you give yourself a bit of leverage to negotiate your back leg up and off the floor. To hold the balance, lengthen out in all directions. If you are having a hard time getting lift off, you can prop your back leg up on a bolster or get a trusted friend to give your back leg a little lift.

Now go pause, pose, and find peace!
