Have you ever looked at a yoga pose and just thought“nope, not a chance!”? For me, that was Crow Pose (Bakasana). The idea of supporting my body weight on just my triceps once seemed so bizarre that I avoided practicing it entirely. Everything changed when I took the leap and attended an arm balance yoga workshop. Through intelligent explanation of the biomechanics, Bakasana suddenly made sense. That said, I didn’t simply float up on my first try, but through persistent practicing with props, I’ve become quite comfortable dedicating a few moments of my daily practice to crow pose.
