yoga positions - Bhuja Vrischikasana
Translation: Arm Balance Scorpion
One of the more challenging arm balance yoga positions. It requires
upper body strength and lower back flexibility. In the complete posture
the feet are placed on the head which relieves the spine of pressure. This
requires tremendous back flexibility but this posture can be done as a
great back stretch in your yoga sequences.
The breath sways the body. Short shallow breaths may be more beneficial in
the learning stages of this pose. You can let the legs hang apart or unite
the inner big toes with a little force.
The fingers are really important in maintaining balance. Applying
pressure on them and releasing them in harmony with the breath can give
you a security and balance. This enables you to relax for a long period of
time in the Arm Balance Scorpion.
