Yoga Deconstructed – Side Crow Tutorial
If you’re comfortable with crow pose, you may also be aware of other poses in the bakasana family. Side crow is a twisted variation of the crow arm balance, and it requires thoracic spine rotation and hip flexibility – as well as balancing on your hands. There’s quite a lot going on!
In this yoga video I deconstruct the different pieces of side crow and show you how to put them all together so that you can confidently hold this twisted arm balance.
Remember, yoga is a practice and advanced poses like these may take more than one try to master. Come back to this video as often as you need – you’ll notice a real progression!
