Forward bends are great for calming the mind, and this variation will also stretch out tight hips and hamstrings.
- From Pigeon Pose, swing your left leg forward and place the sole of your foot against your left inner thigh, pulling your heel as close to your body as you can.
- Inhale to sit up tall and exhale as you fold your torso over your left leg. Rest your hands on the floor on either side of your leg, on your shin, or wrap your hands around your left foot.
- Stay here for five breaths, then sit up. Bend your left knee and swing your right leg back behind you, repeating Pigeon and then Head to Knee Pose A on the left side.
