    Yoga requires discipline and practice, especially when attempting the scorpion pose.
    Even Quiet Minds Yoga owner and yoga instructor Harmonie Field said it’s one of the more difficult poses she’s done, describing how to lean on forearms and lift the body up so feet dangle right above the head.
