Basic Bakasana Breakdown

30 min - Practice


Allison leads a targeted floor-focused practice to break down each part of Bakasana and understand the anatomical actions involved in the pose. We stretch the wrists, strengthen the core, and open the hips, getting a fuller understanding of the elements of this arm balance in safe, prop-supported, non weight-bearing movements, with the option to test it out without props. You will feel confident and inspired.

For me, this was quite challenging (in a good way). The supported crow felt freeing - I enjoyed being in the pose without fear of toppling over. Then, I surprised myself and held crow without the props, a pose that I’ve been avoiding of late…I think the muscle memory of using the props leading up to the pose gave me the confidence to “go for it”. What fun!
Digging protraction and retraction. So helpful
Lauri K aren't they wonderful movements!! So glad they helped. 
Jenny S That is amazing to hear. Thank you so much for sharing. There is magic in thoroughly breaking down a pose, exploring it and then venturing into it both with and without props. I love how they reenforced your confidence  and you went for it with a sense of joy. Way to go!
