Pigeon

Tight hips and sore tush will feel a huge release in Pigeon Pose. Focus on proper alignment with your legs and only drop your arms and head on the ground when you feel open and comfortable. Keeping your gaze forward with your forearms resting on the ground (pictured) might be exactly what you need when you're working with a sore body.

  • From Reverse Warrior on your left side, cartwheel your hands to frame your left foot on your mat. Gently heel-toe your left heel in towards your right hip, resting on the outside of your left thigh.
  • Exhale to lower your forearms to the floor. Stay here, or flatten your torso on your left shin for a deeper stretch.
  • Breathe deeply for five breaths before stepping back to Downward Facing Dog. From Downward Facing Dog, step your right leg between your hands before taking Pigeon Pose on the other side. Once you've completed the pose on both sides, step back to Downward Facing Dog.
