My fear of arm balances (more specifically just crow pose) surfaced close to 2 years ago due to a failed attempt leaving me falling over forwards. Besides the fear of falling flat on my face, I also had a crazy fear of my wrists snapping upon falling forwards…I struggled with this pose so hard I even remember telling Jess this was the goal pose I was trying to get out of YTT (although she did tell me to pick something else because this was too easy). So after weeks of intense practice (the bruised on my triceps will not go away), guidance and encouragement from classmates and Jess, I’m so happy to finally achieve a breakthrough with this pose! I finally got over my psychological barrier and this pose no longer scares me – am so excited to continue improving and exploring different crow variations now!
