Bird of Paradise requires open shoulders and hamstrings.

Good preparations are puppy pose, splits, forward folds, tree pose, utthita hasta padangusthasana and bound triangle.

Start with a standing forward fold, feet shoulder width apart, grab around leg (use a strap if needed). Then lift up but don’t extend leg yet. Once your knee is above hip level, then slowly extend leg.
