About the Series

The Balancing Act teaches you the most highly-coveted intermediate and advanced arm balances in Yoga! Each video teaches you a step-by-step movement progression so that you learn the technique and skill work required for poses like crow, tripod headstand, peacock and eight angle pose.

The eleven 15-20 minute classes, beyond teaching you skill work, will warm up and prepare your body with posture-specific drills and progressions. Patrick offers multiple variations towards the peak pose, allowing you to experiment and practice your developing skills regardless if you have never attempted the arm balance or you are a seasoned practitioner.

This set of classes will teach you to move your body in new and exciting ways that will deepen and enrich your practice!
