Featured Video: Pigeon Pose Variations by Amber Karnes
This video was originally posted on Body Positive Yoga.
Amber made this video to help people who are having trouble with classic Pigeon pose due to knee pain or pressure, who feel unstable in the pose because the hip of the bent leg not touching the floor, or who are uncomfortable or unable to be on hands on knees to set up for those pose. She provides several modifications for the pose, on both the floor and a chair. We think that all these options will make the pose accessible to a very, very wide range of people!
