Bakasana widely recognized as Crow Pose or Crane Pose is an arm balancing posture and is meant for intermediate yoga practitioners. It challenges your core and helps to develop a sense of balance and coordination. The arms bear the weight of the whole body in Bakasana thus strengthening them. Mastering this pose opens the door for advanced arm balancing yoga postures. The key to the perfection in Bakasana is to balance the center of your gravity on the arms.
