If you're having issues with the player:

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.
