Balencing Poses

Our mission is to empower you to reach your nutrition and fitness goals.

Balancing poses: Beginners' balances are an important way to build the core strength necessary for many of yoga's more advanced postures. Though balances may seem difficult at first, you will find that you can improve markedly with regular practice.

Tree Pose (Vrksasana)

Tree pose is a good introduction to balancing postures. If you feel yourself beginning to topple, you can step out of it easily. Try not to create a counterbalance by jutting your hip out to the side on your standing leg.

Downward Facing Dog Splitg

The introduction of appropriate balancing postures helps build core strength. In Down Dog Split, it's not about how high you can lift your leg.

Plank Pose

It might seem strange to call plank a balancing pose, since the risk of falling over is pretty minimal, but it gets to the heart of what this pose is about—core strength.
