Kakasana (Crow pose) and the Bakasana (Crane pose) are balancing asanas. In all variations, these are arm balancing poses in which hands are planted on the floor, shins rest upon upper arms, and feet lift up. The poses are often confused, but traditionally Kakasana has arms bent. This is one of the yoga asana names which are usually a part of the advanced stage of yoga practice. This one needs a lot of dedication, flexibility and strength for sure. You have to balance your whole body on your palms and lift yourself to again bend your legs to make a formation which results like the body of a crane. This yoga pose is very helpful in toning your arms as well as removing fat from the abdomen portion.
