Kapotasana / King Pidgeon Pose

Kapotasana / King Pidgeon Pose

This is one of my favorite poses!

If you are not familiar with Eka Pada Raja Kapotasana or one legged king pidgeon pose and Ustrasana or camel pose in your practice I do not recommend attempting this one just yet! Only try this after you are well warmed up and stretched out.

-Begin on your knee then slowly lower your head and upper body to your feet keep your hips pushing forward and active your abs to protect your spine.

 

-Bring your hands to the mat behind you with straight arms in Kapotasana B variation (keep pushing your hips forward and maintain the arch in your spine) then slowly walk your fingers to grab your heels

-While you are grabbing your heels, slowly lower your elbows onto the mat. It will be hard to take deep breaths because your lungs will be a bit compressed but keep on breathing

 

-Release and with active abs raise your upper body until you are back on your knees.

 

I will post a beginner tutorial soon so stay tuned!  💜Namaste💜

 

“Yoga is not just a physical practice but a spiritual one as well, it shows us our divine nature and connects us to our soul (truth), to the world around us, to nature and to God.”
