YOGA CHALLENGE: Crow

Did you all have fun practicing Tripod Balance Pose as much as I did? I hope so.

I read your comments and was planning on making this week's challenge Tripod Headstand, but colormesticky gave me a much more exciting idea.

This week's Yoga Challenge is Crow Pose. I love it because it really works your arms and core. It can hurt your wrists, so try to press into your fingertips instead of the heels of your palms.

Get your cameras ready people. Send those pictures in to Fitsugar's Yoga Challenge Group called It's a STRETCH: Fit's Yoga Challenge.

Click on "Post Content to the Group" on the left-hand side. Then click on "Blog." To add your picture, just click "Add image." Then click "Submit."

Here we go:

  • For a real challenge, begin this pose in Tripod Balance Pose.
  • Very S-L-O-W-L-Y (did I say slowly?) lift your head up off the ground - in order for this to happen, you need to shift some (NOT all) of your weight into your hips and feet.
  • Now the trick here is to know just how much weight to shift so that you can lift your head, but still stay balanced.
  • Once you're up there balancing on your hands, try to bring your feet together.

That's it - can't wait to see your pics. This pose took me a little while to get because I think my butt weighs more than my head - Could that be? Nah.

Maybe I should have worn a helmet. Want to see my Yoga Bloopers? Then
