I found the shrugging and pushing away motions to not only be demonstrative of the proper arm/shoulder alignment, but WOW! such a strength builder! Nice 👍😊

Jenny S I’m so happy to hear that! I find the simple shrug as part of our regular movement vocabulary, making it easier to understand when we take the arm out to the side and eventually play with the body’s orientation to gravity. Thanks for watching and practicing!

Love this!  Thanks!  Also love your yoga top!  Wondering where you bought it?  I'm 60 years old and I am trying to get stronger in the arms and core for arm balancing.  So this helps a lot!
Stephanie V Hi! I'm so glad you are enjoying these classes!! I believe it is from Beyond Yoga.

I loved taking the time to explore the shoulderblade actions and different set-ups! And now feel like now I've got to know my friend Vashistasana a bit better :). 
Only could use the wall and it was a shock to my shoulders. It was a good shock
