The next pose in the Yoga series is the ‘Eka Paada Raajakapotasana’ i.e., ‘One Legged King Pigeon Pose’. (Eka = One, Paada = Foot/ Leg, Raajakapota = King Pigeon, Aasana = Pose). I’d recommend this pose for those who are well versed with the basic of Yoga stances and are ready to move on to a little more demanding stances / poses.

How to do Eka Pada Rajakapotasana or King Pigeon Pose:

Last time around a lot of you asked me to shoot a video for my Yoga posts. But, somehow I feel there are a lot of yoga videos out there that I could re-share, while my team and I can concentrate on capturing lovely frames of Yogasanas. We feel we do justice to either one of those. So, here is a video on the how to ‘coz it’s a little tricky to follow the write up for Yogasanas :

Benefits of King Pigeon Pose/ Yogasana includes stretching of the neck, back, shoulder, Hip, groin, thighs. Opens the chest and shoulders. Relieves the spine and corrects your posture related problems. It works the deep hip flexors, strengthens your back and core too. This pose certainly relieved my back pain for good.

Caution: Avoid this pose if you have had serious spine, neck, shoulder or knee injury or surgery.

Have you tried the Eka paada rajakapotasana or the King Pigeon Pose yet? Did you feel the stretch while at this pose?  I’d love to hear from you, leave your comments here or on Facebook Twitter Bloglovin Pinterest | Instagram
