"Kakah" is Crow in Sanskrit. Kakahasana is pronouned like the crow's call: Caw-caw-asana. A "Bhakah" is a crane. Don't call a Kakah a Bhakah! If a yoga teacher says "Kakasana time", make sure to bend your elbows in the pose. Only Bakahs straighten their arms. In any case, these Kakasana yoga mats are sure to get your Kundalini airborne. Fly, Crow, fly on these beautiful, inspiring yoga mats.
