Build up support across the front of your pelvis so that you can lie down with both sides of the pelvis evenly dropping down into the bolster. Additional support under your chest and/or forehead may be the perfect finishing touch to soften your neck and shoulders so you can take slow, deep breaths and be able to enjoy the sensations of your hips opening as you release your body into gravity.

Here are some classes featuring Supported Pigeon Pose.
This is a very chill practice perfect for yogis at the end of their pregnancy or simply on a day when you feel fatigued and stressed out. We will breathe through physical tension while working with a mantra and/or intention to help get your mind focused!
Confront and release tight quads through this well-rounded slow flow! Whether you run, cycle or just feel sore, your quads hold so much stress! Open them up and notice how your low back, hips, and knees feel! Aww yeah!
A sequence designed to meet the needs of beginners or the more advanced practitioner, with lumbar, sacrum or sciatic issues. Emphasis on sacrum, hamstrings and psoas to open and balance the relationship between the three so you feel freedom from pain and regain ease of movement.
Honoring, finding, connecting, believing in: your own strength. Even when it feels like you have none. Sometimes it means backing off or learning how to say "no." Going inward to get strong. The mantra is "May I remember that I am strong."
Lots of core work and twists. A fun and challenging class for all levels.
If Oreo's were yoga classes, this practice would have a little yang filling stuffed between two yin cookies. In other words, delicious! Go slow and deep, then build a little heat as you work your strength and resilience, and then bring it home with a little more slow, deep goodness. Enjoy!
This is the final tutorial for a restorative session. All of the poses in this practice are reclining and supported. The only challenge in these poses is the prop setups. Once you get that down, this practice is all about dropping in and chilling out. You want to think Goldie Locks here and arrange the props so that they feel "just right" for you for each practice so that you can deeply rest. In the B side, you will be guided into the poses and have the luxury of time to be in these gently opening postures that allow your body and mind to relax and rejuvenate.
This final restorative practice is the one you will want when you are ready for dessert. This entire practice is filled with reclining, supported postures that allow you to nurture yourself and feel held. It's a perfect practice to slow down and reward yourself with rest after a more challenging session. AND it's the perfect way to relax deeply as a stand-alone session on a day when you feel too tired for an active practice or you just need some extra TLC. Get all of your props out and maybe grab some snuggly socks and an eye pillow to give yourself all of the support you need to truly, deeply rest.
