Bird of paradise! I saw the above photo for the first time way back when Pinterest first got going. It's been making the rounds ever since. It's amazing. So amazing I had to get out my paint and turn it into a little project last year
Bird of paradise is one of those poses that looks insane, but is actually somewhat accessible...it just may never look like that. HA!
This photo was taken June 2013...haven't snapped a recent one of my BOP in awhile, curious to see my progress. I try to practice it almost every day. But then again, I love to balance on one leg and most don't so, you know. Do what you want!
Again, Ekhart Yoga comes through with a free 10 minute sequence to get you there.
