“Chakora is a bird like a partridge, which is said to feed on moonbeams.” – BKS Iyengar
Chakroasana (Partridge Pose) registers as 20* on the 60* scale of difficulty in Light on Yoga.
If you can do Eka Pada Sirsasana, then Chakorasana is a great next step. From Eka Pada Sirsasana, press your hands firmly into the ground to lift your lower body off the mat. Then lift your right leg higher up into the air.
Chakorasana challenges hip flexibility, neck and upper back strength, arm strength and core strength. When you get into the pose, you may find that the pressure of your shin against your neck feels intense. Press your shoulders and your neck back against your shin to help stabilize the pose. In order to lift your legs off the ground, engage your lower belly strongly and activate your right foot up to the sky. I like to think of my right foot as feeding on moonbeams in Chakorasana.
