❤️Day 2 of #sweetheartwithanopenheart is Pigeon Pose - Mermaid OR King variation.❤️
⠀
Mermaid was where I first started to understand what I was lacking if I ever wanted to take the pose deeper into King Pigeon (especially more space in the hips, psoas & upper back). As you reach back to nestle foot into elbow, relax your shoulders and shine your heart forward instead of sinking into your lower back... and know that with consistent practice and time, your body will open up when it’s ready! 🧜🏻‍♀️
⠀
Throughout this challenge, @ally_trout & I will share beginner versions and @yogi.bree & @tiny_kirsty will offer advanced versions for our extra bendy friends!
