Day 8: Balance 2

30 min - Practice


Challenge your balance. In our second day of balance exploration we practice some new challenging postures like Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose) and Ardha Padmasana (Half Lotus Pose) while going deeper into familiar poses. You will feel challenged and focused.

I love the leg stretches in the opening and at the end of this practice.  My bone structure does no allow my hips to open to the side.  Balance poses I need to do at the wall, but half lotus is too painful for my knees,  what could I substitue?
Joan half lotus is a challenge for sure. Cradle the baby is a good option. Also Janusirsasana. You could sit on a bolster and take the lotus leg under the straight leg in instead of the classic lotus fold. Try these out and let me know how they go.

Loved this one too. I had to keep pausing so I could make the class last longer!

Got a fresh perspective here of Vasisthasana / Padangusthasana B / Trikonasa / Ardha Chandrasana all being a similar pose with a unique relationship to gravity. Very cool.
Kate yes!! I know I nerd out a little but this kind of stuff just makes me smile! Each version has a different gift.

I just love this series and find myself  going back again and again albeit in random order, reaping its benefits.

It kept pausing a few times, busy time of day for internet I'm guessing but it made the class longer (Ali).
Great to hear, Christel! I am so happy to hear that People are going back through the lessons. The subsequent rounds will reveal so many things like new strength and awareness. Stay in touch and I look forward to hearing what you’re discovering :)
