We're back to looking good? Or not so much?... Tonight we look at reverse bird. Teaching newbies often, I find this particularly hard for beginners. Many bases even have trouble getting the flyer into it since they can't bring the feet over the head enough. The tricky part with this pose is having a nice shoulder to shoulder line. And based on proportions, that could mean slight piked legs for bases, it's OK as long as your butt is not off the ground like the bottom picture..
Another reason this tends to be hard for beginners is that new bases, when tense, tend to point their feet to push without even realizing it. This sends the flyer toward their face or makes it extremely uncomfortable to hold... Bases should flex the feet to help the flyer lift their chest up. Pretty much the opposite of bird 😊. Flying is the awesome @cirque_renard! #lookinggoodnotsomuch
