It can take time to feel confident when moving into an arm balance. This video uses Crow Pose (Bakasana) to introduce the arm balance fundamentals - controlling your weight with your fingers, using your core muscles to stabilize and lifting away from the ground with energy!

I am barely able to hold the crow pose for more than 2 seconds but I have been practicing it for a week now. However, I got a lower back ache recently. The other asana that I had been trying in my yoga practice is sarvangasana. I have kept my practice on hold until my back recovers. Am I doing something wrong and can I prevent it from happening it?
Great instruction. After quite some time I'm finally able to do this. Soon I hope to be able to straighten my legs up all the way.
Grateful! Well done!
I've never been able to do it, but will keep trying. Peace, love & mung beans - Sheilah :)
