How to do King Pigeon Splits

Posted on August 26 2018

Today's asana is super challenging.  It took me a very long time to master. It requires hips, hamstrings, knees, shoulders flexibility.  Plus, balance, concentration, and stillness. So, don't rush.

Exercise 1:

  • Position yourself 3/4 of your splits length, away from a vertical surface, I use my #feetuptrainer
  • Toes pointed, knee straight, quads engaged, hips squared, shoulders squared and down, long spine, relaxed neck, chin leveled, back knee facing the floor.
  • Bend the back leg, and place it against the Feetup.
  • Stay here X10 Breaths.
  • Repeat with the other leg.

Exercise 2:  

  • Now we are adding more intensity to the previous exercise.
  • Toes pointed, knee straight, quads engaged, hips squared, shoulders squared and down, long spine, relaxed neck, back knee facing the floor.
  • Bend the back leg, and place against the vertical surface behind you.
  • Inhale, take both arms up, gaze at your hands, Exhale band backward.
  • Stay here X10 Breaths.
  • Repeat with the other leg.
