Today's yogic tip

For eka- pada hasta bhujapidasana (one-legged shoulder pose) a good preparatory pose is the humble naukasana (boat). This is because the upper thigh, specifically the muscle strand on top of the leg, gets used in both poses. Unless that is super strong, u simply cannot lift up into the shoulder pose.. In fact the boat can also help u with the more difficult lift in brahmacharyasana.
