Reclined Pigeon (Supta Padangusthasana) helps open your hips without putting too much pressure on your knees. I Love doing this pose at the end of most practices. Helps open my hips just a little more. Remember to flex your feet, to protect your knees! You'll see! :) The relining pigeon pose stretches the piriformis muscle, as well as gluteus muscles, to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve. You should feel the stretch deeper in the right buttock and along the outside of your right thigh. Hold the stretch for up to 20 seconds and release. It stretches your hips, thighs, hamstrings, groins, and calves. Helps strengthen your knees. Stimulates your prostate gland and improves digestion. Great for relieving backache, sciatica, and menstrual discomfort. and very therapeutic for high blood pressure, flat feet, and infertility. Also think about pressing your ankle against your bent knee and your knee against your ankle. You'll see the little activations add to this reclined pose. Maybe even roll a little side to side to really breathe fresh energy into your hips. Enjoy!
