Another favorite flying hip opener around here, galavasana, or flying pigeon requires core and upper body strength, open hips and shoulders, and the willingness to play with counter-balance. Watch the tutorial, then let's get those hips in the air with the classes below that bring this strong and graceful pose into a complete workout!
Ready to work it?
Here are some classes featuring Flying Pigeon Pose.
Pull your focus back to what is real and what is important. Too many of us spend too much time worrying about how we look, or how life looks, instead of celebrating who we are, and what we have to offer. Open your hips, hamstrings and shoulders, strengthen your core, play on your hands and upside down, and feel yourself surrender in Savasana.
All kinds of Archer's Pose and Gate pose variations, lots of shoulder, upper back and side-body opening, love for your quadriceps, hips and hamstrings, cow face pose and a fun flow where you can play with flying pigeon and funky forearm stand variations. Enjoy, yogis!
We start with alternate nostril breathing and then dive into the hips, shoulders and hamstrings. 6-minute abs happen early so you're connected to a strong center as you play with standing balance variations, like ardha chandrasana with a different focal point or no hands on the floor, and arm balances like flying pigeon. It's an intense practice with some long holds and time to feel your feelings and work your practice. Enjoy :)
Work hard to build heat, open the hips, hamstrings and shoulders, fire up your core, play on your hands and open your heart. Then use the heat to release tension both physical and emotional. Your nervous system will thank you!!
Well, we didn't stop moving very much at all, but we had a lot of fun filming this class for you! Want to really feel your outer hips? How about those adductors? We get it all with lots of fun along the way, so get ready to work and sweat, but also get ready to laugh! You might find yourself in flying pigeon, or dragonfly. You may end up in a handstand. You might say to yourself, how did I get here? This is how we do it, one practice at a time!
Wanna work hard today? Let's do it! This is a challenging, sweaty flow where you can expect deep hip, hamstring and shoulder opening, core strengthening, arm balancing and inverting, all while having a good time! There are fun standing frog variations, flipped dog to fallen triangle flows and other hidden treasures along the way!
In this Pure Energy Flow you will be challenged to stay connected to your breath as we transition from pose to pose. We will also play with some fun arm balances and inversions to get your blood pumping!
