Forearm Balance: Strong Core and Solid Base

Intermediate II

In Fiji's 2nd class in her 4-part series on preparing the body for forearm balance (pincha mayurasana). Progressing from what you learned in Forearm Balance: Shoulder Stability and Mobility, she helps you work with the demand that forearm balance has on your core strength and how the strength creates the solid base that you need to do this challenging safely. It's a tough pose to master so take your time learning the technique and testing your body's limits. This class will prepare you for the next step in Forearm Balance: Workshop and Forearm Balance: Partner Play.

I really love how you hold the block between your legs to engage the muscles, it has been a tremendously helpful exercise for me. My blocks are much thicker than yours, though, which is problematic. How thick are the blocks you are using? Another instructor I follow also uses blocks that size, and I would really like to get some. Thank you!

You are my favorite teacher. Love the integrity you emphasize throughout the practice. Know how good it feels when the body is aligned and keep wanting to come back to that feeling again.

Loved this core session! I will bookmark it as a favorite. It has an excellent mix of strength and balance that are both so important to the core.

After 3 kids my core seems to have gone a wall. This is a doable class that I actually like . With the sunshine on Figi's face and the encouraging words ," don't worry we are almost done" this is a good way to start my day!! Thanks for your kindess and fabulous classes!!!
Peace, TW
