Beginner: If you have any difficulty with pigeon pose, beginners should consider using a pillow or rolled towel under and/or behind the knee to protect this delicate joint. Keep your shoulders dropped and chest lifted, hands gently along the ground for balance.
Advanced: The advanced yogi sinks easily into pigeon pose. Focus on tucking the tail under as you lift through the chest and front of the body. With the arms extended overhead, you can really energize the body and get a wonderful stretch through the entire front of your torso.
