Find balance in flying splits
In this short video, Starbird breaks down the intense arm balance Eka Pada Koundinyasana I, aka the Flying Splits. It takes warm and well-loved hamstrings to catch flight so please warm up beforehand with Sun Salutations and forward folds. Then join Starbird for a step by step tutorial. Always remember, practice makes progress. Enter with an open mind and simply do what you can, without stressing about what you currently can't do.
