Day 5 #crowfever extra #crowpress 💗! This could be an entire challenge by itself, but with so many questions, here's a lil tutorial including prep drills! Tap for Sound 🔊!
I've seen a lot of you working the advanced options and playing with pressing from crow to handstand...plus I've had a bunch of DMs. So here's a tutorial including prep drills and 2 of my fav ways to press into handstand from crow. Video is 6x -2x so take your time. Drills should be done 10 times (build up to it) and take breaks in between!!! .
1. Knees to triceps
2. Rock to crow
3. Crow Hops
4. Knee slides
5. Tuck hop to HS and lower- negatives
You will notice I crow press from straight arms (!!!!) ...no momentum. Straight arms is WAY easier, and without momentum I have less movement to harness and correct. 💕
Option A: crow- crane (arms straight!!) - roll hips high-tuck HS (pause for balance- less pause as you progress)-extend legs thru toes
Option B: crow-toe tap (straighten arms)-roll hips high-tuck HS (pause)-extend legs thru toes. .

October #ACROVINYASA Challenge
Day 20: Croc
:BASE: From Mono Reverse Star, focus on staying stable and strong in legs. As flyer shifts weight from one side to the other, engage inner thighs and keep hugging legs into midline. As flyer reaches for foot with free hand, continue to gaze at the highest point of flyer. Stay strong, patient and breathe deeply. Once balanced and stable here, let flyer bring arm over to the other side and transition.
FLYER: From Mono Reverse Star, extend arm out, place elbow crease to base's foot with fingers gripping calf. Activate core and legs all the way to toes. Slowly start laterally flexing at the hip. Shift weight sideways, brace arm and lower torso down onto base's elbow aiming to land between hip and navel. Once in position, extend other arm for better balance and stability. Repeat on the other side.
SPOTTER: Stand alongside base in narrow warrior stance facing flyer's back with hands on either side of flyer's hips. Check for alignment, be the voice of communication, and bring base and flyer back into balance when necessary.
