The Pigeon Pose- Day 14
Today our pose is the pigeon pose. This is a stretch that is great for runners. And I must admit it feels GREAT to go into this pose. For this pose we will start out on all four. Then we’ll tuck one of our legs in front of us, while stretching out our our leg behind us. Then you come to lean forward on our forearms, holding the pose for 20-30 seconds. Come back to all four and do the same thing on the other side. Now that was easy right? If you can’t stretch all the way don’t worry do your best stretch to an uncomfortable comfortable point and work your way up to a greater stretch.
For our dogs pose, we’ll be working and stretching our dogs. Basically you will have them sit in front of you and then lie down on their side. Ok, now work your way down to their hind leg and gently pull their hind leg toward you or toward their head, giving them a nice stretch, don’t pull to hard but gently. And if your dog wants to get out of the pose let them. Hold the pose for 20-30 seconds. Ok, now release the pose and gently roll your dog over on their other side and repeat what you just did on their other leg!
Ok, so that was the pose for today. I think soon we’re going to be putting all these poses though for a great total DOGA workout. Can you see it now a full 30-40 minute video coming up for a great workout with your dog? Ok, so go try this pose out and tell us how you like this and the other videos in the comments below.
And until tomorrow have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day!
