Stay safe

Yoga Journal - - Practice Well -

To avoid a plum­met, your el­bows must re­main shoul­der-width apart and drawn in. Your shoul­der gir­dle should stay lifted and os­cil­late very lit­tle—the grace of this pose lies in the broad span of the col­lar­bones. An­other con­cern: com­press­ing your wrists. To avoid this, spread your fin­gers, as if stretch­ing the web­bing be­tween them. This pro­vides sta­ble sup­port for your wrists, arms, and shoul­ders. Mean­while, to master the ex­quis­ite bal­ance, prac­tice pitch­ing your cen­ter of grav­ity on an oblique an­gle up and for­ward. Aim to bal­ance, if only for a sec­ond, on the slant. Once you find the ful­crum, hover like a grace­ful crane.
