Don't forget to warm up with poses that open the shoulders and strengthen the core, like Dolphin Pose and Plank Pose. Also, choose a clear, safe space against the wall.

Bakasana in Mysore, India
Bakasana, an intermediate-level arm-balancing yoga pose, derives its name from two Sanskrit words: 'Baka,' meaning 'crane,' and 'asana,' signifying 'pose.' This dynamic posture, often referred to as the crane pose, embodies the grace and strength of its avian namesake. In this asana, practitioners engage their core and arm muscles to lift their feet off the ground, creating a balance reminiscent of a crane in flight. It requires focus, stability, and control as one finds equilibrium on one's hands while maintaining a steady breath. founder Yogacharya Lalit practices Bakasana at a temple in Mysore, India- this asana strengthens us physically but the real power in this pose comes from the mental discipline and spiritual grounding that it offers.
