You Can ROCK Crow Pose (20 Minute Video To Get Flying)

by tinareale on October 17, 2014

Bakasana. Crow pose. It’s one of those yoga poses that gets many of us excited. As a beginner, we see crow pose as a feat of the body and inspiration from the more “advanced” yogis. As we get more comfortable in our practice, we believe we can do the pose and it becomes a goal in our practice. And after we grow comfortable in crow, we open a  new world of arm balances and the fun challenges that comes with them. There’s no denying it – crow is a popular pose.

For good reason, too. Physically, the pose helps us to strengthen the upper body and core. It helps improve coordination and balance. Mentally, the pose brings us to a place of facing fears and releasing doubts. We gain greater concentration and focus by working on the pose. If you want to be rocking bakasana, or even if you’re already doing it and loving it, then this practice is just for you!

Fly Into Crow

This practice brings awareness to many of the elements used to successfully do Bakasana, crow pose. The sequence will work to gradually build heat and strength in the upper body and core. Establish a solid foundation and watch yourself fly!


This practice is not suggested if you have wrist or shoulder injuries. If you have any other injuries, health conditions, or recent surgeries, or if you are pregnant, seek guidance from your doctor and/or a personal yoga instructor before doing these at-home videos. Always move within a pain-free range of motion and immediately stop any pose that causes pain or doesn’t feel right for your body.

Very cool. I love watching your yoga journey. No, I cannot do crow pose. Well… I can for a brief half a second before falling on my face :)

Half a second is still getting up! ;)

Yoga has been SO good to me, so I’m excited to share more of it.

Tina Reale Yoga? Very cool! When did this happen and how did I miss it!

I felt like such a bada$$ when I finally mastered crow. After headaches and even laughter because I toppled so many times I did it! Next goal? Handstand!

Hey Jill!!! It was just about a month ago I decided to come back and give blogging a go with a yoga focus. The higher intensity workouts weren’t a passion of mine anymore, which burned me out, but now I love to share the yoga goodness. How are you???!

Tina, love your new Yoga site! I’ve missed seeing you at Red Hot but assumed you were at Alpharetta – so happy for you! I was in my living room showing off crow pose this week – first I’d done it since shoulder surgery. Well, my 16 year old plopped down and got right into the pose with no fear or problem! So much for my showing off!

Hey!!!! Yea…I’ve been doing more home practice and teaching/taking up in Alpharetta. Right now I really only head down to Buckhead for Bethany’s Power 2 classes. Love them! Would love to see you sometime!

And don’t you love how some people just pop right up in to poses? My husband did the same thing with crow. And headstand even!

LOVING this new website you have! I have been doing power yoga at the gym but so glad to have you when I can’t make it – which is frequently :) Tried this video yesterday, it was hard! But a good hard! Thanks for sharing this. I have been wanting to work on crow and am now determined to be able to do it. I was able to hold for about 10 seconds yesterday, woohoo! Baby steps…

Aw, thanks Erin!!! It’s so nice to have things to do at home, huh? And 10 seconds is doing the pose. Way to go!
