Yoga Improves Balance

Vrksasana - Tree Pose: Yoga Improves Balance

Feeling unbalanced? Practicing yoga literally improves your balance!

In the Iyengar Yoga method, we help beginners build balance by focusing on standing poses in a safe and easy to follow progression. Iyengar Yoga teachers are also trained in modifying poses and helping students know when to take more support, including to support their balance.

At first, you may not even realize you are building your balance, but once you are ready, we introduce Vrksasana (Tree Pose) and Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose) in a supported progression.

We don’t expect you to immediately balance on one foot — but we do know how to help you get there by moving step-by-step through a sequenced set of preparations.
