#StrongYogi Pose of the Week: Forearm Stand

Our #StrongYogi pose of the week is forearm stand, or Pincha Mayurasana. This is another difficult pose that has many different levels. Stay within what is good for your body, and have fun with this one!

1. Start in dolphin pose.

2. Firmly root your forearms into the mat, keeping them shoulder width distance apart. Spread your fingers and root all ten knuckles into the mat.

Pull up through your belly as you lift one leg into the air. From here, you can press into forearm stand by lifting your other leg into the air, or take some hops to get your other leg into the air.

When both legs are in the air, press your fingers firmly into the mat and pull your belly towards your spine to stay balanced while inverted. Take 10 breaths and come into child’s pose to release. Enjoy!
