A foundational arm balance in yoga, Bakasana or Crane Pose requires strength and stability in the shoulder girdle that, when accessed, creates the inner strength that lets you power through challenging situations with more ease. Suitable for intermediate to advanced practitioners, this lesson uses targeted exercises and proper form and alignment to warm up and build the shoulders, upper back, core, arms, and wrists, then teaches you to lift off into and jump back from Crane Pose.
