8. Downward Dog > Pigeon Pose
From downward dog, swing your right leg through your arms, and bend that right leg before placing it on the floor with your knee right between your hands. Extend your left leg behind you, and press with your hands on the floor, arching your back. You should feel a good stretch in your hips and along the front of your body. Hold this pose for 10 deep breaths, then switch your legs and repeat on the left side.
To come out of pigeon pose, flex the back foot, and swing it around in front of you. Straighten the front leg, so you’re sitting up straight with your legs sticking out in front of you. Now, come to a standing position.
