Pigeon pose is an excellent hip opening pose. Many of us tend to store tension and stress within the hips, making this pose beneficial both physically and mentally. It provides a deep opening for the hip flexors (psoas and rectus femoris), groin muscles and hip rotator muscles (gluteus medius & minimus ). It may provide some relief from sciatic pain. Proceed with caution if you have any knee or sacroiliac joint injuries.
Deepen your practice, explore a new style, target your core, stretch away your stress or enrich the mind – any time of day, as often as you like, at your pace.
