If you’re slightly familiar with the world of yoga, you’ve probably heard about a posture called crow pose. Crow Pose, or Bakasana, is an arm balancing asana from Hatha Yoga. It involves lifting the body up by leaning the shins on the upper arms. It helps strengthen different body parts like the core, the arms, the wrists, and the back.
In this video, which also happens to be a Halloween video (hence the blonde wig on Adriene’s head during the first 30 seconds), Adriene walks us through the fundamentals of the beloved crow pose. She offers a slow, step-by-step tutorial to make sure we don’t miss a single detail on our way to create the perfect Crow Pose.
“This asana also teaches us and reminds us of the importance of integration in our postures. We work to create a full-body experience. Keep your gaze forward and rock in and out of it,” Adriene writes in the video’s description.
“Crow is a wonderful posture to return to again and again for inspiration and a reminder to focus on the practice. Breathe deep, take your time, and enjoy the journey! The journey is the reward!”
