The Little Crow That Could…

April Yoga Challenge: Day 23: Baby Bakasana

I’m kinda in love with this adorable, mini arm balance. One day, this little baby crow will grow up to be a big, strong crow – forearms lifted,  feets-a-floating, perhaps even a tripod headstand! 🙂 haha While this is the smallest & simplest of arm balances, it still takes a great deal of strength to not dump into your arms and well…land on your face.

Baby Bakasana

Take a squat & place forearms down. Fingers spread wide and shoulder blades draw in towards the spine.
place knees on triceps/armpits….
