Beginner Yoga Challenge: Half Pigeon Forward Bend
Performed by Marin Jayden
Benefits of the Half Pigeon Forward Bend: This pose helps treat urinary disorders and alleviate sciatica pain. It stimulates the organs in your chest, stomach and abdomen as well as stretches the hips and groin.
- From Downward Facing Dog, move both feet together and move your right knee forward.
- Let your entire left leg rest on the mat.
- Bend your right leg across your body and let your body rest on top of it on the ground.
- Extend your arms in front of you and hold.
Modifications: If this pose creates too much stress for your right knee, use a block under your hips. Only bend your knee as far as you are comfortable.
