Bakasana / Crane Pose is one of many postures practiced at Detroit Yoga that can be achieved by anyone with enough patience, persistence, and consistent effort. It's not complicated but not easy.
We should all voluntarily practice something every day that demands our complete attention. Crane definitely does that for us.
String Crane together with other Ashtanga / Vinyasa postures and movements that are a little more or less demanding during a quiet one hour class, where one can clearly hear the quality of their breathing and monitor the quality of their thoughts, two or three or more times each week, and the skill of being completely present combined with the endurance of being calm under pressure is built more and more.
After years of practice, what may have started as just a physical exercise has now transformed the individual into a more attentive and less reactive (or over-reactive) member of the family, workplace, and community.
Yoga practice doesn't cost, it pays.
