Default Core or balance issue?

Just a question about laser lead rotation drill. I am able to rotate enough to get my left shoulder clear of the water but struggle to get even the tip of my right shoulder out. Is this a balance or core problem?
I do yoga most days and I am well balanced on land. Also although I breathe bi laterally it is not so easy to the right side so I'm wondering if the two issues are connected?

it could be both/either a balance and/or core issue. muscle activation often does not translate from movement pattern to movement pattern. so you could be great at yoga on land but you lose the control in water.

one word about yoga - depending on how you practice it, i've seen yoga students have great mobility but poor stability, or potentially even poor torso bracing despite the fact that yoga, if taught and practiced correctly, should create the proper physical attributes.

also, it could just mean you favor one side which is natural. practicing more TI will help you be more equal on both sides.

I believe that if you change your focus from trying to lift the left shoulder up and dry to letting the right side settle into the water a little bit more/deeper you will achieve the desired effect. By settling the right side down, the left will rise.
