Yoga should never cause pain but sometimes you need to find the egde to make a difference.
Pigeon Pose is therapy for the body, a deep massage and essential for melting away tightness through the lower body. Practicing this stretch consistently should start to have a significant impact on your flexibility through the buttocks, hips and legs which will not only improve your practice but benefit you throughout daily life.
It’s so good at isolating those muscles that if done correctly it should give you a bitter sweet sensation through your areas of tightness or the edge as I like to refer to it.
The subtle difference between pleasure and pain where you start to progress and make changes to your body.
Use the position of the front leg to achieve the ultimate stretch and then actively twist and turn your pelvis to guide you and help you find your sweet spot. You can lower your body to the floor over your front leg to go even further. With the floor and your upper body as a support you can really use this pose to gain maximum stretch whilst knowing you’re safely grounded.
Try holding it for a minute then building up as you become stronger and more flexible.
Yoga should never cause pain but find those sore, tight areas and work into them. There maybe some discomfort but use your breath to help you.
