This class builds toward a fundamental arm balance called Side Plank. In this posture it is important to create alignment and integration in the shoulders and core to support your weight while simultaneously maintaining balance. More than many postures, Side Plank encourages us to accept the possibility of "falling". This possibility asks us to consider who we are when we move beyond our notions of perfection, both mentally and physically. Holding steady in a challenging situation is an important lesson in yoga.
