Yoga Tips – Is it ok to wobble in balance yoga poses? With Vanessa Rudge
Do the wobbles get you feeling disheartened in your practice?
Wobbling is actually a feedback loop between our foundation and brain via the nervous system to strengthen proprioception - how we know where we are in space.
In the video below, I explain in more detail why it's okay to wobble during balance poses.
As yogis once we’ve mastered balancing on one foot we challenge our balance by using different foundations, like handstand, headstand etc.
So, what are the benefits of adding balance poses into your practice?
Balancing poses in yoga positively impact both our physical and mental health.
In our body, they help us to align ourselves, to strengthen and lengthen our muscles, and to explore our centre of gravity.
Regular practice of balance poses can improve the function of the body's equilibrium receptors.
