3 Unique Arm Asanas

In most styles of yoga, it is a rare case in which an asana is dedicated to just one piece of the body. This is not so in Universal Yoga. Universal Yoga offers many unique asanas designed to specifically target one region of the body. For example, yoga asanas for the arms are strategically incorporated into each Universal Yoga flow. As a teacher and a student of yoga, I’m very intrigued by these arm asanas and will totally be weaving them into my own sequences.
