Pigeon Pose

Pigeon Pose:- The pigeon pose which is also known as Eka Pada Kapotasana in Sanskrit is a form of yoga which is practised in Hatha Yoga. In this pose, the chest of the practitioner is puffed out, similar to a pigeon, and that is the reason behind its name. This yoga pose is practised by laying the back, head, neck and shoulders on a mat. The knees are bent and feet are placed on the ground with hip at some distance.

It is a typical yoga pose which is used to open up the hip region through the elongation of the hips, back and knees. This in turn helps in avoidance of injuries and enhances elasticity.

Boat Pose

Boat Pose:- As a yoga instructor, dedicated yoga practitioner and a mother, I often get asked if there is one singular posture in yoga that will help firm the muscles in the core abdominal region. This question is often posed to me by mom’s looking to get rid of their post-baby belly. And for someone, who practised yoga throughout the nine months of my pregnancy and relied on nothing but yoga, breastfeeding and a healthy diet to get me back into my pre-baby shape, my answer is quite simply: Boat pose or navasana.

Half Moon Pose


Half Moon/Starfish Pose:- Balancing poses mostly require a tremendous amount of focus, but this one, which is a creative cross between Sage and Half Moon, requires strength in your upper body and core as well. As challenging as it is, it’s also a really fun pose to try, because it makes you feel so open, adventurous, and bold.
