“What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, What if you fly?” Erin Hanson
There’s an art to Crow pose or Kakasana in yoga.
Even for more experienced yogis, it can be tricky to lift your body into this challenging arm balance and feel confident when you’re there.
But it’s worth the work. Once you’re up and find the right alignment, the pose can feel almost effortless – like you are flying.
And Kakasana comes some serious health benefits. It tones and strengthens your abdominals and arms, requires balance and builds concentration. As you begin to hold this position, the muscles in your arms, wrists and even your fingers are given a stretch. This is a great for injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome or if you spend most of your day in front of a screen.
