Arching Pigeon

Open hip flexors are a must for spinal flexibility, so here's a pose that will target the front of the hips as well as offer a nice stretch for the front of the body.

  • Lift your right foot and arm into the air, and rotate your torso 180 degrees, pivoting on your left foot. Plant your right hand in Down Dog position, and bring your right knee between your hands, coming into Pigeon.
  • Plant your palms beside your hips, and gently arch back, releasing your head between your shoulder blades.
  • Enjoy this pose for five breaths.
