Its fabulos:)


Doing this pose for minutes at a time is a great workout for your wrists and shoulders and is a great preparatory pose for peacock.


This is what my teacher called crow. Used to be able to do


This morning I came up into this pose in front of the whole class thanks to a very helpful tip from my instructor. Place a block in front of you to be the "target" for your head. You won't actually rest your head on the block at all but by focusing on it, I was able to pull my front body forward enough to lift my feet off the floor without as much difficulty. Yay! Namaste!


One feels very confident in this pose as one balances on the strength of Arms. At the end of exercise I always do Bakasana and feel that my back is completely stretched. Initially one may fall or unable to lift legs. Practice until you get it.


hey today while trying this pose i fell out of it - like in the past. But after class the top of my foot, right below my ankle hurts. Could i have injured myself when i fell out of the pose?


It took me 4 times, but I got this pose! It does feel great after you master it! NAMASTE TO YOU ALL!*;+)


Fell on my face! delightful

I love the crane pose it's my absolute favorite thing evahhhhhh


In response to Kat: Bakasana should translate to crane pose. Baka in sanskrit means crane.
