How to: Side Crow to Eka Pada Koundinyasana (Flying Splits)
In this class, you'll learn how to do two advanced arm poses, Side Crow and Eka Pada Koundinyasana (Flying Splits).
Eka Pada Koundinyasana I is an asymmetrical twisted arm balance, similar to Side Crow Pose. It is a challenging posture that builds muscle while also massaging internal organs through twisting movements. I recommend warming up the body and wrists before trying these poses for the first time.
Benefits of Side Crow Pose:
Strengthens your entire upper body
Improves your core strength
Stretches your back and groin muscles
Aids in digestion and detoxification of internal organs
Benefits of Eka Pada Koundinyasana I Pose:
Strengthens your upper body and your spine
Tones abdominal muscles
