The Crow Pose

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.

  1. Start off by getting into the Downward Dog pose. Make sure your palms are pressed into the mat.

  2. Walk your feet forward until your knees touch your arms.

  3. Bend your elbows, lift your heels off the floor, and rest your knees against your outer upper arms.

  4. Keep your toes on the floor, you abs engaged and your legs pressed against your arms. Hold for 5-10 breaths.


  1. Start in the beginners position and slowly move your body forward until the weight of your body is balanced over you hands.

  2. As your upper body is tilting forward, slowly lift one of your legs toward the ceiling.

  3. Squeeze your glutes, spread out your toes, and hold for 5-10 breaths.

  4. Repeat with the other leg.

We hope you've enjoyed Yoga Week with Jambu™ - Have a great weekend :)
