One-Legged King Pigeon

DSC_0079 Energize and refresh your body with the One-Legged King Pigeon Pose!

Stretches the thighs, groins, psoas, abdominals, chest, shoulders, neck, and back. It stimulates the abdominals, opens the hips, shoulders, and chest.

The key is to move slowly. Start at downward facing dog, lift the right leg up to downward facing dog split, right knee forwards to the right wrist. Drop the shin down to be parallel with the mat, hips are square to the front and you are lifted and even in the hips. Extend the left leg all the way back behind you. Slowly lift the back leg up, grab a hold of your foot with your left hand/arm.

Amazing counter poses to try after:
Child’s Pose, Big Toe Pose, Forward Fold, Seated Forward Fold, Hero Pose!

xx love & light.
