Pigeon, Yoga for Runners

Pigeon, Yoga for Runners

Preparation: From Downward Dog, lift the right leg up behind you and sweep the knee to the wrist on the same side.  The front heel will rest in front of the opposite hip.

Execution: Square up the hips to the front of the mat by drawing the front-leg hip back and the rear-leg hip forward. From there you can lay down to relax or keep the torso upright for more of an intense stretch.

Notes: If the hips are high above the mat, place a block(s) under the forward-leg hip for stability.  If you experience knee pain, modify the pose by sitting up and placing the forward ankle onto the opposite thigh below the knee.  The more you bend the “opposite” knee, the more intense the sensation.
