When I first started Yoga, this pose was one of my favorite. A bit challenging at first, but fun and relaxing too! It is a continuation of the Downward Dog pose, so if you've got that one down - you're good to go :)
The Crow Pose AKA Bakasana
Helps with strengthening your wrists, forearms and abs. Improves balance.
- Start off by getting into the Downward Dog pose. Make sure your palms are pressed into the mat.
- Walk your feet forward until your knees touch your arms.
- Bend your elbows, lift your heels off the floor, and rest your knees against your outer upper arms.
- Keep your toes on the floor, you abs engaged and your legs pressed against your arms. Hold for 5-10 breaths.
- Start in the beginners position and slowly move your body forward until the weight of your body is balanced over you hands.
- As your upper body is tilting forward, slowly lift one of your legs toward the ceiling.
- Squeeze your glutes, spread out your toes, and hold for 5-10 breaths.
- Repeat with the other leg.
