Pigeon pose- Eka Pada Raja Kapotasana is often sprinkled in beginner yoga classes. Unfortunately, this pose is also often taught with very little safety cues. Misaligning your pigeon pose can lead to knee injury so it is very important to so this pose safely. Remember the golden rule of knees: NO PAIN IS EVER ACCEPTABLE! Knees have NO muscles in them. So if you’re experiencing knee pain, it is a warning sign. Stop what you are doing. Try another variation.
Pigeon pose is calming, cooling and a beautiful hip opener. It is a great restorative pose when done properly. We absolutely LOVE pigeon pose. It’s a great way to introspect and relax. Please practice this pose safely!
