Yoga Tips for Women: Crane Pose
This pose requires balance and helps build strength in the arms and shoulders.
Squat down with your feet a few inches apart. With your knees wider than your hips, lean the torso forward, between the inner thighs. Stretch your arms forward, bend your elbows, place your hands on the floor and the backs of the upper arms against the shins. Squeeze your inner thighs against the sides of your torso, your shins into your armpits, and get the upper arms down as low onto the shins as possible. Lift yourself onto the balls of your feet and lean forward, pressing the weight of your torso onto the backs of the upper arms; feet come off of the floor. Stay in the pose anywhere from 20 seconds to 1 minute.
