    Mindy Piland: Hey, my name is Mindy Piland and I am going you through the steps to get yourself into Crow. Okay, now coming into Malasana, by fixing your hands to your heart center, sinking all the way down, gluing your palms to the mat. Your gaze comes forward, lifting your hips up, slightly resting your knees on your triceps, you can lift up to for baby crawl, lifting one leg, your gaze stays all the way forward, very important part, then listing both feet up, the full expression is straightening your legs and holding it here for five breaths and then you can seat back to Chaturanga, upward facing dog and then exhale downward facing dog.

    Hey, thank you.
