Your Body – Bakasana

We are suggesting some selected Yog Asanas to rejuvenate your body. Next in the series is:

Benefits: The crow pose strengthens the wrist, forearms, and abdomen. It improves balance and core strength.

Procedure: Bend your knees slightly so that you can bring your palms flat on the floor about shoulder’s distance apart. Plant your palms firmly on the mat about a foot in front of your feet. Spread your fingers wide and press into the top joint of each finger. Bend your elbows straight back. Don’t bend them into full chaturanga arms, but head in that direction. Come up onto the balls of your feet and open your knees so that they line up with your upper arms. Place your knees on the backs of your upper arms. Begin to bring your weight forward into your hands, lifting your head as you go. Come up onto your tiptoes, and then lift one foot and then the other off the floor. Hug your knees toward the midline. Hug your feet toward your butt. To come out, transfer your weight back until your feet come back to the floor.
