Why can’t I do Bakasana?

Is Crow Pose difficult?

Mermaid pose is a variation of One-Legged King Pigeon pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotonasana). It’s a combo move—a hip opening seated pose combined with a backbend. It requires your hips to be flexible enough to take the basic shape of Pigeon pose and mobility through your upper or thoracic spine.

Why does Crow Pose hurt my arms?
Your upper arms – it’s common to get bruises on the backs of your arms when you are starting out with Crow Pose. As you develop lightness in the pose through practice this will lessen. If it is particularly painful place your knees to your outer upper arms instead of resting on the backs of them.
