Here are two videos of jumping to Bakasana, otherwise known as Bakasana B.
This first video demonstrates an “easier” way of jumping into Bakasana from Down-Dog. It’s easier in the sense that you don’t have to take the hips as high and you don’t have to lower yourself down so slowly. Basically, you want to jump the knees right at the back of the arms, without floating the hips up high and without getting much hang time.
This second video demonstrates a more difficult and, I think, more graceful way of jumping into Bakasana from Down-Dog. Here, the initial movement is much higher, so the hips go up almost above the shoulders. Notice also the the lower down is much slower and more controlled than in the first video. This version of jumping to Bakasana takes a bit more arm and core strength, as well as balance; it’s essentially the last part of lowering down from Handstand into Bakasana.
