Is it advanced if you find it easy? Arm balances are often touted as being advanced yoga postures but body proportions make a big deal on how easeful or difficult many of the postures are. If you have short legs like me it makes certain yoga postures more accessible whereas if you have longer legs they act as longer levers making some postures more difficult. Same for longer or shorter torsos and longer or shorter arms, or short arms and long torsos, the postures are not going to look the same on different bodies as we all have different proportions. Forget "advanced" yoga postures and cookie cutter postures and learn movement and movement skills instead.
