YouTube Tuesday - Strength for Arm Balances

Arm balances....they look cool, they make us feel like badasses and turns out....they're pretty darn hard.  Arm balances are so great for a number of things physically: arm strength, core strength, back strength, shoulder strength, focus and that feeling of badassery that happens when a new skill is mastered but they are also great for a number of things emotionally/spiritually: feeling grounded, feeling strong, breath, focus, humility, determination, feeling like a badass.... 

It is so important as fun as arm balances can be that they are done safely and within the scope of what is good for and safe for your body on any given day.  Incorporating strengthening routines into your practice consistently can help make your arm balances fly.  Check out the video below.
