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.

Last time around a lot of you asked me to shoot a video for my Yoga posts.

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.
