Eka Pada Bakasana or one-legged crane pose has been a challenge to say the least. I've tried a few ways to come into it and today I just figured a new way to transition into it.
1. Start on the ground with one leg extended and the other leg bent with the foot firmly on the floor.
2. Pin the bent leg back with the arm. Both hands are firmly on the ground.
3. Round the upper back and shoulders as you press into the mat engaging the core to lift off of the mat.
4. Bend the straight leg to pull it into center and as you press into the hands engage the core again to lift the hips to extend the leg.
5. Bring the extended leg back to the other elbow to end in full Bakasana.
