5. Beginner Balance – Crow

In this Yoga & Stretching for Climbing video, our CTT Yoga Instructor Ashley Fay walks us through the Beginner Balance – Crow pose. The crow pose strengthens the wrist, forearm, and shoulder, and has the ability to help with the fear of heights.

  1. Start at the front of your mat, and come down to a squat, hands flat on the ground.
  2. Place your knees on the inside of your arm pits.
  3. Look up, gaze forward, and slowly start to rock your weight forward, balancing onto your arms.
  4. Exhale come down to rest your wrists, arms.
  5. Repeat crow pose.

Modification – Try baby crow pose by keeping your elbows on the ground.
