Crow pose! It can be done!
Crow pose it awesome and this is why...
It is a FABULOUS reminder that Yoga is not about creating the perfect shape but about the juicy journey and the return to the mat.
That is perhaps the biggest benefit of Bakasana or Crow pose.
In this special Halloween episode of Yoga With Adriene we learn the foundations of Crow Pose. Bakasana is a Hatha Yoga arm balance that challenges the mind body connection in the most fun way and strengthens the core. It strengthens the abdominal organs which can aide in indigestion and support the lower back. Also known as the Crane pose, this posture strengthens the arms, the wrist, the back body and the abdominal organs. This asana also teaches us and reminds us of the importance of integration in our postures. We work to create a full body experience to fly in our posture. Keep your gaze forward and rock in and out of it. Stay positive! Crow is a wonderful posture to return to again and again for inspiration and a reminder to focus on the practice. Breathe deep, take your time and enjoy the journey! The journey is the reward!
