Crow To Handstand Yoga Transition with Angela Kukhahn in Brock Cahill’s Class at Yogis Anonymous!
“Never Stop Lifting!” is the advice my teacher Krista Cahill gave me what felt like a million times as I attempted (and failed) at this seemingly impossible transition from Crow Pose (Bakasana) to Handstand.
Physically its all about shifting your weight forward by moving your pelvis up and forward and bringing your knees towards your chest.
Mentally it is all about never giving up, even when something looks and feels impossible!
This transition serves as a great reminder to never ever, ever give up!
What poses inspire you? What have you learned from them?

Well done! I love the inspiration…”never stop lifting”
I just checked out your blog, very cool! I noticed you posted a similar video too, I guess great minds think alike 🙂 I am going to link to you via my blogroll.
I noticed you said you are working towards press handstand. I have found it helpful to use yoga blocks or sturdy books. Begin pressing up with your feet on increasingly shorter yoga block/books until you feel comfortable without them.
Good Luck, can’t wait to see the video!
Awesome! Actually this is one of my big goals! I have a ways to go, but I just go my pike press handstand back.. so someday 🙂
Yes, press pike handstand and crow to handstand are like twins, very similar! If you understand one you are very close to getting the second one! Good luck!
Sweet! Looking great. I aspire to get that one – in time and on time.
That’s an excellent attitude! “Practice, all is coming!” as Pattabi Jois said. Good luck!
