Pigeon pose is essential for opening tight hips and hip flexors.
- Bend your right knee and extend your left leg behind you. Place your hands on your hips and gently arch your back.
- To make this pose more relaxing, fold your torso over your front leg. Place your arms on the bed and rest your head on your forearms.
- Hold like this for five breaths (or more if you love it), then repeat Pigeon with the left knee in front.
