Today on @yogatics Single Leg Crow and some variations by @dylanwerneryoga 🤗 This pose like all arm balances is about maintaining stability. The more bent arm stability you’re able to maintain, the easier the variations of this pose will be.Key things that will make this arm balance dramatically easier.
1. Place your knee above the elbow rather than higher on the triceps or in the armpit. When your knee is on the elbow, it aligns the hips over the hands, stacks the thigh bone directly above the forearm and allows for an easier center of balance.
2. Squeeze the arms towards the midline. A common mistake is to let the elbows to open outwards. When this happens, you’ll lose stability.
3. Keep the shoulders the same height. Often when moving to single leg crow, people will lean towards the arm with the knee on it. This places all the weight on one side, and again you’ll lose stability.
4. Shift the weight forward towards the fingertips. If the pressure stays in the heel of the hands, the hips won’t be far enough forward to maintain balance. Bring the weight into the fingers and it will be effortless to lift the leg. Of course, now you have to confront the fear of falling on your face. A pillow makes a perfect prop to help with this fear.
5. Lift from the glute. If you’re having trouble lifting the leg, go back to step 4, bring one knee to the center, and raise the leg with a bent knee. Make sure to use the butt muscle to do the heavy lifting.
.
It takes awhile to develop the bent arm and core stability to make these transitions. If you notice, my hips stay roughly in the same place through all the transitions, and my arms and shoulders don’t move.
.
It can be challenging to incorporate all these new cues. Changing the position of the knee can be super challenging if you’re used to having it higher but once you’re able to incorporate it, the more advanced variations will be so much easier.
