Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 28 Today we'll practice lots of core strengthening and we'll work up to an arm balance called bakasana. Bakasana is called crow or crane pose. It's challenging and we'll go through the actions for the pose before we attempt it. I'd recommend a pillow or blanket to put under your face, just in case you lose your balance and fall forward. This class is great to hip and shoulder stretching as well as strengthening your belly muscles. Enjoy and rememeber...it's not about if you get into the pose or not...just do your best and while you're practicing your mind will quiet down and be present. Giving ourselves a break from the chatter of the mind is the gift of yoga...the pose is just for fun!
