If you're having issues with the player:

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.

Equipment: Strap, Block
Style: Vinyasa Yoga, Yoga for Strength

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.
