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.

Yoga Tips for Women: Four Limb Staff Pose

This is a challenging pose similar to a push-up.

Coming from Plank pose (raised push-up), slowly lower your torso and legs to a few inches above and parallel to the floor. Keep the elbows close to the body in a 90 degree angle. Hold yourself in this position by keeping the abs pulled in tight and keep the head in a neutral position. Release with an exhalation and lay yourself lightly down onto the floor.
