Upward Flamingo Yoga | Yoga for Managers

Upward Flamingo

There are all sorts of bird-inspired asanas – body postures in yoga – from Pigeon to Eagle, from Emu to Bird of Paradise. There is an Ostrich, a Kite Hawk and of course a Phoenix. Even the Cassowary has its own pose – and how many of you can actually describe how a cassowary looks? How come there is no Flamingo??? Encouraged by this lamentable lack of diversity in the yoga universe, I felt compelled to take sides for this incredibly adaptable and marvellously pink bird and name my website after it. And consequently create a pose around it, inspired by one of my favourite asanas, Upward Dog. (Last update: April 3rd, 2022)
