Crow pose was the first arm balance I learned, and I remember how tough it was to me at that time. It's hard to convince your brain not to freak out when you're going upside down in an inversion or lifting off in an arm balance like Crow. There is a real fear of literally falling on your face. Any inversion or arm balance requires practice. Getting comfortable (mentally) when lifting off or going upside down can be one of the main hurdles.
I write this post to encourage you if you're working on Crow because with the right alignment and enough practice, you can do it, too.
I have many conversations with people about overall wellness, and this comes up more than you'd think. I know that a healthy diet can be challenging to introduce. It takes more time to think through your grocery list and sort through healthy recipes than it does to buy prepared, processed foods. Plus, it's not always as delicious as french fries are. It's already hard, so it can be doubly frustrating if your loved ones (spouse, kids, roommate) aren't thrilled about it. If that strikes a nerve with you, hopefully you'll find some inspiration here to help you make it more fun and appealing to them.
