LL Yoga Superstar

The diary of Leslie Lewis, professional yogi on the run in NYC
King Pigeon, also known as Eka Pada Rajakapotasana 1, is not only a beautiful pose but a multi-beneficial one as well.  As a backbend it stretches the spine, chest and neck, helping to release tension and calm the mind.  It is also a hip opener, opening the back and outer hip areas of the front leg and the frontal hip area of the back leg.  The quad muscles and ankle of the back leg as well as the groin area are stretched.  When attempting this pose remember to focus on lengthening your spine which will help you avoid crunching your lower back.
