Pars Bakasana - Side Crow Breakdown
Pars Bakasana – Side Crow
‘Parsva’ meaning ‘side’ or ‘flank’, ‘baka’ meaning crane or crow and ‘asana’ meaning pose. In this variation of Crow, we are twisting the torso, hooking the knee or shin ontop of the elbow or tricep & hovering the feet off the ground. This pose builds strength in the arms, shoulders, wrist & the abdominal muscles. It also stretches your back muscles & improves digestion & detoxification. This advanced version of crow not only improves focus & concentration but increases body awareness and cooridination as well.
