I really want to learn the crow pose but I have super tight thigh muscles and can't seem to get my curl tight enough. I can balance for some seconds. Will my tight thigh muscles prevent me from doing this pose or should I keep trying?
Hey there Curtis Hamilton! How are you? Have you been practicing other videos as well? How is your body feeling?
I would say that if you continue to practice the Yoga sequences, your hips will gradually open up enough to gain more range of motion for crow:) Unless there's some anatomical bone structure preventing the 'curl' as you mention, you should be fine, it just may take a bit. The knees don't have to go up too high, just high enough to reach the elbows or outer edge of elbows, then press elbows/arms into legs and legs into arms to create stability and you may find some success. Give it a try, keep practicing and definitely keep me posted!! Robert

I practice yoga weekly. Started doing stretches for tight thigh/and or hip muscles. Also was told by pilates teacher that I have weak core so I will start regular core training. But thanks for your response. I will continue practicing with your video daily. Will advise when I can finally do the pose.

Practiced crow pose intermittently from what I learned on your tutorial. For some reason I was afraid to practice daily. They teach 3 levels of yoga practice at my local YMCA. They don't teach styles per say. But I attended the advance yoga class today. I promised myself that I would not do that class again until I could do the crow pose. But I went today unprepared I thought. But when we did the crow, I did it the whole time. I never lost balance and it was actually quite easy. Thank you for this tutorial.

I guess the hard work and practice has paid off for you! So glad the crow tutorial was helpful my friend 👍
