Flow to Side Crane+Crow

This Flow to Side Crane+Crow is about 75 min. You will prepare your body with LOTS of twists and hip openings to practice Side Crane (otherwise known as side crow).  बक = baka which means kind of heron or crane, according to Spoken Sanskrit Dictionary. Learn something new everyday, yogis!

In the springtime I think about Krishna because he is associated with romance, love, playfulness and enchantment with the good and beautiful things on earth. That’s why I included a brief story about baby Krishna’s playful trick on his Mom.  He shows her his true godly nature in a way that is playful and silly.  We don’t always associate lightheartedness with divinity or universal truths and the story is  a good way to remember the adorable side of the cosmos. Namaste!
