Most yogis have very strong feelings about pigeon pose. Love it or hate it, pigeon pose is one of the most elegant, versatile, challenging and confounding poses in the yoga pantheon of practice.
For those reasons, no yoga pose is more deserving of a party than pigeon pose. Pigeon pose is several poses in one—it’s a hip opening, quad stretching, core-stabilizing backbend or forward bend, depending on how you choose to take it. This pose asks you to do many things at once and requires you to do them all skillfully.
So this afternoon, we’ll explore pigeon pose and all of her angles. And we’ll have so much fun doing it, we’ll call it a party!
