I decided to demonstrate how to do crow pose using props. I believe this pose can be challenging for most because of the mindset we sometimes create… thinking we can’t do it.
I want to change that MINDSET 🙂😄😃

TIP # 1 CONFIDENCE…
Before you know you are capable of something more you naturally, LACK confidence… what you need to do is change your MINDSET to believe, you CAN do and go even figure then you could ever IMAGINE!
I had to practice for a while before I was able to control my balance, BUT now I can transition into other poses… like one-legged crow pose, side crow, crow into headstand, crow into chaturanga…
It is an AMAZING feeling when you ALLOW yourself to be CONFIDENT!
TIP # 2 PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE…
Fall as many times as you need too…
Doing the pose only in the classroom or once in a while is not enough for a pose like this one… it takes a while for you to feel comfortable and CONFIDENT controlling your balance in this pose.
TIP # 3 PROPS
Use as many PROPS as you need to FEEL comfortable and CONFIDENT in your practice. Stuff at home like pillows and books or Yoga Blocks and bolster
TIP # 4 STOP MAKING EXCUSES… 😏
I have heard all sorts of them
TIP # 5 FIND INSPIRATION 🙌🏾
MEET JESSAMYN she is a YOGI PRO who I have admired for YEARS!!! 🙌🏾 She shows us how size and weight don’t matter when you keep practising you can breakdown ALL BARRIERS!
TIP # 5 ACCOUNTABILITY 👏🏽
I have heard many times in my class that students have crow on their list to master… so let’s get it done this YEAR!!!!
