6. Crow Pose

Crow Pose

The core strength required for crow pose is pretty intense, so don’t get frustrated if you can’t do it right away. Begin by squatting so low that your hands are on the ground, pushing your knees away from each other. Keep your feet together, extend your hands out in front of you, palms on ground, and bend your triceps so far that knees can be placed on them.

Make sure you don’t look at the ground, because that will make you more likely to fall over. Have your fingers wide enough for a strong base, then lift up your butt and tailbone, placing your knees on your triceps. Make sure you engage your core the entire time! You can take it one leg at a time if you need to, jumping one leg up until you can hold it with both legs in the air. Hold as long as desired.
