This variation of Crow involves a little spinal twist and is just the pose to work your upper body.
- From a Wide Squat, walk your feet together. Twist your torso to the right, and place both hands on the floor, so they're parallel with your thighs and shoulder-width apart.
- Place your outer right hip onto your right elbow and your outer right knee onto your left elbow.
- Shift weight into your palms, and lift your feet off the floor, coming into Side Crow. Hold here for five breaths, and then release your feet to the floor, coming back to a low squat position.
- Rotate your torso to the left, and repeat this pose on the other side. After five breaths, come back to a low squat.
