Seated pigeon posture

¬°¬°flNG/ Figure 18-16 demonstrates this posture; here's how you do it.

Don't try this posture if you've had a hip replacement.

1. Start in the seated mountain posture.

2. As you exhale, bring your bent right knee directly up and then hold the outside of that knee with your right hand and the outside of your right heel with your left hand.

3. Place the outside of your right ankle on top of your left thigh just above your left knee; drop your right knee down towards the floor to a comfortable level.

4. Stay for 4 to 6 breaths and then repeat on the other side.

You can slowly and gently move your top knee up and down a few times to limber the hip joint before you relax and breathe.
