Sanskrit: Bakasana/Kakasana


  • Squat with your feet together and your knees opened out to the sides. Place your hands flat on the ground in front of you, spreading your fingers. Your elbows are bent and your torso leans forward. Find a focus point to assist your balance by looking down to the ground.
  • Lean further forward as you raise your heels off the ground so that you can rest your shins on the backs of your upper arms as near to your armpits as possible.
  • Raise your feet off the ground toward your buttocks as you lean your weight into your arms and hands. Round your spine as you do so by contracting your abdominal muscles and keeping your legs well tucked in. This will help you to achieve a feeling of lightness in the position. Raise your head slightly to help counteract the tendency to fall forwards.
  • Lastly, if you can, straighten your arms to balance. I can’t cos I’m ffffffffffffffffalling!
  • This is a very strong arm pose. I would rate it at 9/10.
