Side Crow

  • Now that you're got the hang of balancing on the arms in Crow, release the feet to the floor, touching the knees and toes together.
  • Rotate your torso to the right, and place both palms flat on the ground, shoulder width apart. They should be perpendicular to your thighs.
  • Spread your fingers as wide as you can, and begin to shift to the right, putting some of your weight into your hands. Your outer right knee is going to rest on your left elbow, and your outer right thigh (close to your hip) is going to rest on your right elbow. Think of your arms as the legs of a table, and your left thigh is the tabletop.
  • Try to keep your knees together as you shift all your weight into your hands and slowly lift your feet off the floor.
  • It's OK if you lose your balance and fall over. Just keep trying until eventually you can hold this pose for five even breaths.
