Bakasana Tutorial

Beauty, grace, strength and concentration.
These are the objectives that pop into my head whenever I think about the crane pose.

Here are a few tips to improve your bakasana:

Strong wrists and shoulders

Exercise 1
▪️Feet together
Shift the bodyweight forward
Press the mat away
Straight arms
Shoulders over wrists
Belly in and glued to the tights
▪️Shift the bodyweight back
Shoulders on top of wrists
▪️Lift one leg at a time
Repeat x 10 times

Exercise 2
Lying down makes a bakasana like a shape
Exhale compression of the core
Inhale release

Malasana is your best ally for your bakasana practice
