This is a core, chest, and hip focused class leading towards bakasana.

I recently took to Instagram to ask what most of you are currently working on in your practice. There were various answers, ranging from physical to the more spiritual. But by far, most of you were practicing your bakasana!

Bakasana is my favorite arm balance, because it's one of the first yoga "peak pose" that I was able to do. It's a cornerstone of arm balances in yoga, and it gives you an awesome sense of strength once you're able to do it! On the flip side though, it does require a lot of strength and balance to achieve, so it's something that will need time and effort. As with all poses, it's fine to practice, but don't let your ego get in the way! Give effort without expecting results. Strength takes time to build, so go slow and you'll get there faster!
