Yogic tip for today

When trying the crow and if nervous here is a tip: Don't keep moving back and forth from the base position. It is a sign of nervousness and that the body feels it is not ready for the pose. Instead, get strength and confidence by just staying in the base position and moving up from one toe to another. Do not swing the hips back. Stay with the weight on the upper arms (mid arm lock) and shuffle from one toe to another. The body will get used to the weight needed for the pose. Beginners move the hips back, lose the lock at the arms and ruin the chance to gain strength and confidence... if you keep moving the hips back, u may take forever(never) to get the pose...
