Ever try a yoga pose and feel like your body just doesn’t make that shape? Erin Motz (a.k.a. the Bad Yogi) has 3 ideas to help you rock Crow Pose.
The first time getting into Crow Pose (aka Crane) is special for a lot of people, and it definitely was for me. It was the first arm balance I ever achieved in a yoga class, and I’ll never forget that completely capable feeling of being equal parts strong and flexible. For the first time, instead of feeling like a fumbling newbie, I felt like my body was actually capable of some of the amazing things I’d seen other yogis do. The simple act of trying and kind of getting it gave me the confidence to keep at it. Confidence is often half the battle in yoga and exactly what we need to work past a lot of our roadblocks. Try these three modifications to cultivate a can-do attitude, instill hope, and motivate yourself to keep practicing.
