Bakasana - Crane/Crow Pose
I've read that the key to this pose, is to NOT concentrate on lifting your feet off of the floor, but to gently and slowly move your body forward to put all of your weight onto your arms and wrists and by contracting the abs at the same time your feet should automatically lift off of the floor.
I think partner work on this pose will be a great way to ease into it. My main fear is falling flat on my face, literally. So having a partner to hold my shoulders and keep me from falling forward as I move into the pose will be a huge help. This way I can get a feel for the pose while being supported.
