Tomorrows Day 8 for #heartopeningyogis is brought to you again from the beautiful beaches of Florida!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ The Pigeon Pose is a great hip, chest and shoulder opener. Simultaneously, it’s an amazing stretch for your legs and spine.
Begin in Downward-Facing Dog, or on your hands and knees in Table Pose.
Bring your left knee between your hands, placing your left ankle near your right wrist. Extend your right leg behind you so your kneecap and the top of your foot rest on the floor.
Press through your fingertips as you lift your torso away from your thigh. Lengthen the front of your body. Release your tailbone back toward your heels. Work on squaring your hips and the front side of your torso to the front of your mat.
Draw down through your front-leg shin and balance your weight evenly between your right and left hips. Flex your front foot. Press down through the tops of all five toes of the back foot.
You can stay here for 10-30 breathes OR
Bend your back (right) knee. Reach your right arm back and take hold of the outside of your right ankle. Keep your left foot flexed. ❤️(use a strap for added support!)❤️ If you are okay there, reach your left arm back and hold onto the inside of your right ankle. Square your shoulders to the front of the room. Or use any variation you feel comfortable in this pose. Hold for up to 30 seconds, then slowly release. Repeat this variation on the opposite side.
Check out @tddjpmom and @fraliefamily for their variation. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Make sure your profile is PUBLIC so we can see your beautiful posts and don’t forget to tag and show love to our generous sponsors!!
