A really good pose to practice after the Front Bird (see post) and a good way to combine it with many other poses creating nice flows! Just be creative :)
❌ Don't forget your arms! Remember, more points of contact = better stability. In Throne, you need the arms in line and shift most of your weight into them! ❌ Communication is key! Squeeze the hand side that you want to release or shift weight. Sometimes words are confusing or less informative than a touch, where is right/left when you are upside down? Shortcut: flyer in a sumo squat pose and base feet on the "thought" (thigh/butt) of the flyer! Push strong in the arms and lift! Afterwards, you probably need to adjust the feet' position of the base. 🔚 Exit 1: Throne -> standing. Base grab the flyer's ankles, bend knees towards the chest and release the ankles once the flyer is touching the floor. 🔚 Exit 2: Throne -> Front Bird. Base bend knees, flyer place feet on base's shin. Connect the hands slowly. Base release one leg at a time looking for Front Bird position.
Difficulty level (1 very low to 5 very high): 1
