Aside from flying pigeon pose, eka pada koundinyasana 2 aka split leg arm balance was another pose that totally seemed way over my head. I could get into lizard pose, but from there I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out how to lift that front leg.
After lots of upper body and core strength building, as well as major hamstring opening, I think I've finally got it down.
The pre-requisites for this pose, I'd say, is crow pose, eight angle pose (and/or maybe this awesome variation), a solid navasana and major hamstring opening. If you're feeling confident in those aspects of your practice, then give this a go.
Let me know how it goes for you down below in the comments! Any other poses you'd like to see broken down?
