Typically to these arm balance tutorials, we will move through some stages, which eventually lead to the full eight angle pose. I will walk You through this process step by step and point out crucial factors that make execution of astavakrasana smoother, more stable and efficient. One of the key challenges of this posture is finding the concentration to move through preparatory stages without rushing, as our legs leave the ground before the full pose is assumed. Astavakrasana also requires considerable strength and stamina in the arms, as well as flexibility in the legs, so be mindful of Your current level and patient with preparation.
