Full Arm Balance translates literally from Sanskrit as Down Facing Tree Pose, (Adho means down, Mukha face and Vrksa tree). The tangible benefits are the energy and strength that it builds. Adho Mukha Vrksasana enlivens and lifts our spirits, and is especially helpful to do early in an evening class or a practice to recharge us after a long day’s work. As with all inverted asanas, fresh blood is circulated to the head, brain, heart, and upper trunk. BKS Iyengar has stated, “These asanas access different centres in the brain and body helping the immune system.”

Benefits of this pose:

  •     Relieves mild depression
  •     Strengthens the shoulders, arms, and wrists
  •     Stretches the belly
  •     Improves sense of balance
