How do you do Pigeon Pose?
Begin on all fours in Downward Dog, with your feet together and arms wide on the mat. Your body should resemble an upside-down “V.”
Lift your left leg back and up, leading with a flexed heel. Your leg should be straight and in line with your body.
Bend your left leg and begin to cross it forward in front of your right leg as your whole body lowers toward the mat.
Lower your leg onto the mat, placing your left foot in front of your right hip. Your right leg should lie on the floor behind you.
Fold your upper body over your left leg, with your arms stretched in front of you and palms facing down. Hold the stretch and then repeat on the other side.

Beginners can also use blocks for support or lie on their back instead of leaning forward to make the move a bit easier.
