Bird Poses

Both of these poses, inspired by birds, enhance balance, strength and endurance.  Both types of poses counteract the effects of too much computer work, Crow (Katasana) or Crane/Birdie (Bakasana) by strengthening the wrists and arms,  and Eagle (Garudasana) by providing an amazing upper back stretch.  The twist required to do Side Crow or Side Crane (Parsva Bakasana), tones the belly and massages the internal organs.
