Pigeon Tutorial with Darcy Lyon

Yoga Class Description

Pigeon pose is a wonderful basic hip opener that is accessible to many levels of practitioners. Done with accurate alignment, it helps free the low back, clear sciatica or hip tightness and prepare us for deeper hip openers. However, I often see people collapsing into the joints in this pose - something that puts your knees at risk. In this yoga video tutorial with Darcy Lyon, we'll look at some great prep poses to help make pigeon more accessible. We'll also look at techniques of alignment which support your knees and make this pose safe. Have a blanket available.
Level: Beginner
