Recently I wrote a blog entry for Yoga on High. Enjoy!
This is a fun and challenging sequence to prepare you for Grasshopper arm balance. This arm balance requires a deep twist in the core, open hips, a solid Chatturanga and a sense of humor! Warm up with some gentle twists on the back and sun salutations. Some of the prep poses are challenging themselves, so take the poses step by step and a little at a time! To balance the sequence, you could also add other standing poses, like Warrior B or Triangle. I’ve complimented the arm balance with Camel Pose, which feels great on my body, but any backbend would work- including the restorative version on Bridge pose. Whether or not you work into the arm balance, enjoy this sassy sequence of twists and hips! Have fun with it!
