Gentle Yoga Poses : Yoga Crow Pose

Gentle Yoga Poses : Yoga Crow Pose


In crow you start off with mountain posture
with the heels together, toes apart. And take your left foot out. Now in crow, you’re going
to find each side of your body’s a little bit different. You can take that right foot
and just touch that big toe right to the floor. And take your shoulders right back. Now when
you take your shoulders back in a standing posture for balance, it helps you with balance,
it opens up the sternum and bring your arms right up. In mountain posture, with the feet
starting off and then into crow, now you want your fingers pointing toward the floor, and
the toes. It’s called pointing the fingers and toes towards the earth. Shoulders are
right back. In this posture here you can lift up that left knee. Some people find it challenging
so you just put 95% of the weight on one leg and 5% inside the other. But you can come
up with that leg. You can take that leg out away from you. Breathe in deep through your
nose and exhale and another deep breath in, exhale. And another deep breath in, exhale.
Now release right down into that and shift your body weight so your right foot goes off
the floor, take it away from you. Take the arms out, the shoulders back, fingers and
towards the earth. Ninety-five percent of the weight will go on the straight leg on
the left, or pick up that right foot, bring in deep through your nose, and exhale. Another
deep breath in, exhale. You can take that out, pointing the toes towards the earth.
Breathe in deep through your nose, and exhale. Another deep breath in, exhale, release and
come right down. And shaker it out.
