Here's a short instructional video on how to do astavakrasana pose (aka Eight Angle Pose). It's an arm balance found in the third series in the Ashtanga practice, and it is great for hips, arms, and especially the core. This video also includes a good core exercise for beginners (or anyone who wants to strengthen their abs). Hope you enjoy! Have a wonderful weekend!
