Arm balances are both intimidating and fun.
It's safe to say that most yoga arm balances aren't best suited for many beginners. However, many yoga students find it difficult to resist them. The good news is that these postures come in a wide variety of styles and difficulty levels, so usually most yogis can find an arm balance that is within their reach.
Crow Pose is the arm balance of choice for many beginners. It's typically the first arm balance attempt for many students. Like many yoga poses, it offers an easy and hard version. However, either version will require some strength and dedication.
Some arm balance postures are inversions as well, therefore allowing the yogi to receive all the health benefits of being upside down. Some of the most common arm balance poses would include Grasshopper Pose, Astavakrasana Pose, Firefly Pose, Forearm Stand, and of course Crow Pose.
