Yoga Reflection & Pigeon Pose

I have been practicing yoga now for over a year. There are still some poses that baffle me, and for the most part I still feel like a yoga newbie. However with yoga came a chance to learn how to breathe, let go and a connection to my body I have never felt before. I still have stress, anxiety and OCD but when I am on my mat it melts away.



One of my favorite poses is pigeon pose. It opens up the hips and it is said we hold fear in our hips. Bye bye fear! I also heard that if you suffer from anxiety that pigeon would be difficult, I however find it deeply relaxing - to the point I want to nap in this pose! The video above is really great at showing you how to do the pose and variations. I have not mastered getting my leg in alignment with the mat, I am still at the 10 and 2 o'clock knee positions.

If you want to try yoga - do it! Do not let the fear of not being flexible hold you back! I am learning how to be more flexible and you will to! I want to blog more about yoga this year and encourge people to try it!
