Bakasana (Crow Pose): The most basic arm balance. Once you have mastered this pose, you can build off of it and go into deeper poses that aren’t so beginner. The photo above shows exactly how to master Bakasana.
As of yesterday, I have begun to master Bakasana! Typically, you hold this pose for about five breaths — I was able to hold it for two full breaths, which isn’t too shabby for just getting started. I’ve attempted this pose in the past, but was not able to master it. As I attempted a few times yesterday, I was able to find my balance — although I did fall on my face the first couple of tries, which is pretty common for beginning! It’s best to have a cushion or pillow in front of you to mask your fall.
Mastering a new yoga pose feels exhilarating. Your mind and body are working together to improve and test yourself every day. Your sequences are making you stronger each time you complete them. I look forward to tracking my progress as I hope you share yours.
Share your success to bring inspiration! This world needs more of it. 🙂
