Advanced Arm Balance Yoga Poses : Advanced Flying Insect Pose Arm Balances in Advanced Yoga


Hi! My name is Leta Koontz and I’m a yoga
instructor at Schoolhouse Yoga in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I’m here today on behalf of
Expert Village to teach you some arm balances. Okay, so if you’re feeling pretty comfortable
with flying insect pose, if you want to try the advanced pose here’s what you’re going
to do. You’re going to need to come a little bit deeper. You’re going to step your feet
that same distance apart, about the width of your mat. This time you have to come really
far back so you can get your shoulders under your knee. You want to bring your hands to
the floor and sit back. This time, instead of bringing your legs parallel to the floor,
you’re going to bring them perpendicular to the floor. You’re going to start to lift them
up as you drop your hips down. When you’re ready to come down, just come through to flying
insect and bring your feet to the floor. Let me show you that from a different angle. Again,
set your feet a couple feet apart. Come pretty deep so your shoulders are under your knees.
Keep the belly pulled in the entire time. Start to lift the legs up and to gaze up.
