  1. Thank you both for your advice! I'll keep the tips in mind next time I work on crow pose. I'm glad I'm not the only one with the bruises issue!
  2. Hello everyone! I'm looking for some advice on executing crow pose properly. I'm at an intermediate-ish level with yoga, and I have great flexibility but I'm working on my strength. I know core strength is essential for crow pose, but I just can't seem to do it correctly even keeping that in mind. I can do a modified sort of crow pose--knees on the outside of my arms--perfectly fine. But the second I attempt to do it correctly--knees up on the back of my arms, as high as possible--the pressure from my knees on the arms leaves me with huge bruises and it hurts too much to hold. Is this an issue of core strength? Thanks so much for any help! Madison
