Bakasana



I don't know if this is going to work. I don't know how to compress video. Maybe I need to film it compressed or with lower resolution. Anyway ... this is a pose I am working on. It is called Bakasana, or Crane pose. I'm not exactly good at it yet but I am noticeably stronger in it and have much better balance. I find that arm balances are some of my favorite poses, so I imagine I will focus on them a lot. Well, let's give it a shot shall we and see if it plays.

Cool - kitchen yoga with the Marshall Tucker band! lol
I try & do yoga 2/3 times a week - it keeps me centered.
Those arm poses are tough - good job!

YAY!!! That was way inspiring. I used to be able to do that, and climb a 5-10 route on a vertical wall. I want to get that kind of strength back. I'm curious, if you go to a yoga class how do you keep up with people that have been coming for awhile? Do you just jump right in or do you look for a beginner class? Maybe I should get a good video.......
This has totally motivated me to get my ass moving! Thanks for the video

Hello everybody. TS-I would say if you have a place that has options for different levels than try a beginner class. If however, like my classes I go to it's a mixed bag, then just go at your own pace. If your teacher is good, they will tell you to rest when you need to etc. Definetely don't feel like you have to push yourself to keep up with someone whose been at it a while. That's a good way to get hurt. I hope you give it a go. It's amazing how strong and flexible you get, relatively quickly, with just gently, regular practice. If you allow it to, you do start to feel the peace from it as well.

I've been meaning to try a yoga class myself - my sil does Bikram yoga, but that sounds like torture to me. Hey - your kitchen cabinets, pulls and stove look exactly like mine! weird.

When I have shot videos, I film them at a lower resolution with better ease and success of loading onto my computer.
