Shoulder-Pressing Pose (Bhujapidasana)

A series of illustrated yoga poses with men performing the Shoulder-Pressing Pose

Shoulder Pressing Pose is an intermediate posture that takes a lot of strength and flexibility. A key to getting into Shoulder Pressing Pose is to be mindful of the preparatory postures that will give the Yogi the energy needed for this arm balance. Shoulder Pressing Pose is great for students beginning their arm balance practice and isn’t so much about strength as it is positioning.

To do Shoulder-Pressing Pose, begin in a squat with the knees wide. With the arms on the inside of the thighs, press into the mat to straighten the arms and lift the thigh-high. Working with the left shoulder first, work the shoulder under the left thigh so that the thigh rests above the elbow. Repeat on the right side until the butt is off the ground. The placing of the hands and thighs on the arms is very important in holding this fun pose!
