Yoga Exercises : Yoga: Side Crow Pose


We are going to continue with the arm balance
sequence and this is a tough pose. It is a variation on crow or side crow. You are going
to start by placing the left heel and sitting back, sit bone to the heel. Take your right
leg and cross over the left leg. Bring the hands to the floor in front of you much like
you would a chadaranga so the arms are shoulder distance apart. You are going to bend at the
elbows just slightly so you can make a platform for that right knee to place on the left tricep.
Now to move into this pose I am going to turn the toes under on that back leg and let the
hips just a little bit leaning over so most of the weight now is in the arms and then
I can twist lifting that right leg off the floor staying here or extend the back leg
towards the back wall and extend the right leg out. That is the full pose and coming
back in and sitting back. So we’ll do the second side in the next frame.
