Balancing on our hands is such an empowering feeling

Learn how in this Side Crow Tutorial (Parsva Bakasana)

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!
