I love this tutorial!!! Dog, cat, bird!! I will keep practicing with these tips. It doesn't help I am overweight apple shaped and must always have a knee blanket down but I admired some beatutiful fat pelicans off the Florida gulf coast last week, so have much hope!! Thank you so much.

This is something I find super difficult, despite having the arm strength and flexibility. The tips and demos should help - thanks Rachel!

This is an incredibly helpful tutorial that shows how mini adjustments can be the difference between thumping and learning to gently hop between the hands and then even forward into more postures. Thank you. Namaste from Ireland.
