Sanskrit: Kapotasana or Eka Pada Rajakapotasana

This posture is good for stretching the groin, tights and back. In downward dog, bend your right knee and swing them forward in a Pigeon pose or some may called it Swan pose. You should square your hip and press it down towards the floor. For beginners that have difficulty to square you hip, place a block under your butt. This is just the beginning of pigeon pose aka Kapotasana.

For the full pigeon pose aka Eka Pada Rajakapotasana, bend your left knee and using your left hand to catch hold of your leg.

You may need to practise more of the asana before going to the full posture which may be difficult for some. But to me, boy, after almost 9 months, the instructor still commented that I have imbalance posture.

It is the difficulty of squaring my shoulder to the front especially if you are someone that can’t tolerate back bend.

Well, need to brush up lots of skill here and also flexibility. I will rate this asana at 8/10! lol. It may look easy but the fact is, it is not!

Namaste, everyone!
