Note: If you have knee issues, please go to the pose "Thread the Needle" instead. If the knees don't trouble you, but the hips are a bit tight, have a block or a blanket handy. Once you've set up your pigeon pose, focus on full inhales and complete exhales.

Here are some classes featuring One-Legged King Pigeon Pose.
Work Hard & Relax Hard! This combo flow and stretch practice will leave you blissed out and feeling amazing! Get ready to move and sweat in the first portion of the practice. Sun Salutations, standing poses and a couple of arm balances allow for a lot of internal heat. Then stretch everything out with long holds in pigeon, hanuman, frog, and bound angle. You'll come out of savasana feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and centered!
Wind it up and sweat it out with a Side Angle/Warrior II Flow that will take you into the hips and side body and get your heart rate up while you do it. An early Lizard pose preps your hips to let go, and a late, deep and long Pigeon should get the rest of it (whatever it is ;)) out. Side Plank and plenty of vinyasas for your shoulders, and of course, some heart opening and a sweet Savasana.
Dessert! Hips, Hamstrings and Savasana. If you're building your own flow today, this is the chill part! Can be done as a stand-alone for a yin session if you're in need of something restorative and chill, or you can do it as part of the whole practice. Much love, mamas!
Like it or not, we all have wounds, and the less we pay attention to them, the more they tend to get the best of us. Let this practice help you take ownership of your own healing first by noticing what's there, and then working through it with patience, determination and creativity.
Release stress, physical tension & emotional heaviness in this dynamic short flow! We work with Sun Salutations to burn through stagnant energy and open up the body. Standing twists and core work in plank help to quiet the mind. Arm balance options are given as well. Lizard Pose and Pigeon help to release emotional energy in the hips. We finish the practice with backbends and a few twists. Clear out the old and step into a new you! Enjoy Yogis!
The theme of this class is: Being in your body. This vinyasa flow all levels class is designed to help you get fully present, awake, and aware. It's so easy to check out and this class is here to help you stay put, even when it is messy or painful or hard.
Find the sweet spot between effort & surrender in this Fly Strong Flow practice. We explore anjaneyasana, triangle, half moon, crow pose and more. Learn how to move from tripod headstand into crow pose. Challenge the body in crescent twist and bound side angle pose. Experience deep hip release in lizard & pigeon pose. Time to play upside down is given, and we work our way into a deep & relaxing Savasana!
Series C so we can build some heat, and then deep into the hips and hamstrings we go. Love for the shoulders is also included. Great for days when you have low to moderate energy but really feel the need to open. Lizard pose, pigeon pose and mermaid/merman along the way. If you’re “sitting on anything” now, you won’t be soon ;)
Create deep opening in under an hour! This flow is all about building heat in the hips, shoulders & core. We move through Sun Salutations and standing postures that include hip & shoulder opening. Pigeon, double pigeon & resting pigeon are incorporated to get all of the tightness & stress out of the hips. Enjoy yogis!
Fear will always be there. The question is: what are you going to do about it? Are you letting fear run your life? A class designed to challenge fear and not let it be the boss of us. The mantra comes from my bracelet that says, "F*ck Fear and Fly."
