How to Do Yoga Crow Pose – Women’s Fitness

How to Do Yoga Crow Pose – part of the women’s fitness video series by GeoBeats. Hi, I’m Colleen and this is Brenna. We’re here today at Bend Yoga Studio. We’re going to show you Bakasana, a Crow Pose. Brenna is squatting on the ground with her feet running down on the floor. Her spine extending up out of the Pelvis. As she’s ready, she’ll gently press her hands down on to the floor and begin to tuck her weight forward into the palms of her hands, and then to her finger tips. She’ll place her knees on the outside of her upper arm bones. And now she’s ready, she’ll take her forearms perpendicular to the floors so that her elbows are over her wrist. Breathing in and breathing out, she’ll gently draw the belly up towards her spine to tipping her weight forward and as she’s ready the toes will flow off the ground. Breathing for 3 to 5 breaths, this pose runs down into the forearms, strengthens the arms. As she’s ready, she’ll exhale and gently draw her feet to the floor, coming back into a squat.

How to Do Yoga Half Moon Pose – part of the women’s fitness video series by GeoBeats. Hi, I’m Colleen and this is Brenna. We’re at Bend Yoga Studio today and we’re going to show you Ardha Chandrasana or Half Moon Pose. Brenna begins with her feet grounding down on to the mat. As she inhales, she’ll lift her hands up over her head. And as she exhales she’ll fall forward over her legs coming into a very beautiful forward fold. Great, very good. From there she’ll inhale, she’ll lengthen her spine and step her right finger tips forward about 10 or 12 inches in front of her right toes. Great. From there she’ll gently bent her knees a little bit and extend her left foot straight back out of her left hip. As she breathes in she’ll draw strength into her belly and as she breaths out she’ll extend her right and left legs very straight. And grounding down into her right fingertips as she’s ready, she’ll lift her left finger tips up into the sky. If its comfortable and she trusts her right shin bone, and if she grounds down into her right finger tip, she can turn her gaze up towards the sky as well.

  2. I can do it (thx for the tips!) but always think my trunk/face is lower than what it´s shown on video even trying to not keep my arms too flexed.
