Thursdays Pose to Try

boy_bandw
Bakasana - Crow Pose Benefits: Builds arm, shoulder and abdominal strength as well as stamina Bakasana is a great pose to try if you are interested in inversions but afraid of headstand or handstand. The key to all poses is proper foundation so make sure your hands are shoulder distance apart, wrist creases parallel to front of mat, and fingers spread. You don't need super human strength to get into this pose but it's more about how to shift your weight and when to engage the specific muscles required in this pose. Some things that may help are to root down with the base of each finger (especially the thumb and index finger), actively push the floor away with hands, engage inner thigh muscles, draw the belly in and up, draw shoulders away from ears and spread across the shoulder blades. Give it a try!
