Practicing firefly pose can work wonders for an individual's balance and core strength. The health benefits of the pose include:
- Strengthens the shoulders, arms and wrists
- Improves balance
- Opens the hips
- Stretches inner groin
- Tones abdominal organs and improves function
- Boosts self-confidence
Firefly pose can be quite challenging for beginners. These individuals should practice the pose slowly, straightening the legs as much as possible. Even if the pose can only be held for a few seconds at first, the duration will increase as the practitioner gains balance.
