Balancing Yoga Poses

The usual picture that people have in mind for someone doing yoga is simply a person twisting his legs and arms into a pretzel-like position. Most people who never tried yoga for themselves are oblivious to the fact that yoga gives you the best balance training that you can ask for.

Yoga for balance offers you yoga poses that teach you how to keep your full body weight on one leg, on the tip of the feet, on your hands and arms or even on your head!

If you always wanted to practice balancing yoga poses but never knew how, you can start with those yoga positions listed below. But please remember to warm up before you start with these poses as you need your muscles to be warm and flexible to hold you up. Also, if you are not secure, please place a blanket in front of you so that you don’t hurt yourself if you should fall.

Enjoy practicing these poses – they are definitely very impressive once you have mastered them!
