How to jump into Bakasana

04 January 2015: Interviewee: Mark Robberds

Mark Robberds is a Certified Ashtanga Yoga teacher and takes workshops and retreats around the world. You can find out more about his coming events on his website I had the pleasure of practicing with him recently while he was at Purple Valley in Goa and came away with many great tips. This is the first of a few shorties that I took during that time as well as a full length interview. Keep tuned in as the rest will be coming soon.

Jumping into Bakasana seems like no big deal until you try it. Then it can feel like there is a very large mountain to climb. In this short clip Mark gives an excellent step by step guide to lead you through both the set up and building blocks for achieving a controlled jump into Bakasana.

    That’s a great teaching, Thanks for the video. Breaking it down into steps certainly makes it easier.
    Can we ask for requests here?
    I am attempting jumping into Parsva Bakasana. I start by jumping into tripod headstand but without bring the head all the way to the floor. I usually end up splitting the knees around the arm and can’t quite get them both on top. I have tried jumping into half handstand then lowering but that’s not working. And I have also been practicing twists, Pasasana etc. But that doesn’t seem to help much either.
