Benefits

Pigeon is a great Yoga move for stretching your glutes and keeping the muscles in your hip complex loose and healthy. Maintaining proper length in your muscles is crucial to overall muscular health, so don’t skip this!

And, beginners, don’t worry. Staying up on your hands is still plenty to feel a deep stretch.

 

How-to

To get into the Pigeon Pose, start on your hands and knees. Bring one knee forward, and turn your leg with your foot facing in. Push your hips back and feel the stretch in the glute of the leg that’s forward.

To go deeper into the stretch, slowly bend your arms and come down onto your elbows.
