Side Crow Pose

This is a more difficult variation of the Crow Pose, and surprisingly very different. The elbows are bent deep enough to provide a shelf for the stacked knees, and the hips are in a fairly deep twist. The benefits of this pose is shoulder, arms, wrists, abdominal, spine and chest strength. This posture also provides a great "massage" of your internal organs, improving your digestion. This one of the more challenging arm balance poses.

So you are balancing your tucked knees on the shelf of only one arm rather than a shelf of two arms?

Yes, the actual pose is done on one elbow. You can modify or work into the pose by resting your hips on the other elbow if needed
