Eka Pada Rajakapotasana: Power Yoga Sequence For One-Legged King Pigeon Pose
Eka Pada Rajakapotasana is a challenging seated hip opener yoga pose which comes after the other series of Pigeon Poses. This advanced variation of the hip opener follows the Power Yoga Style in the given yoga sequence.
Power Yoga is about strength and endurance. The movement between the yoga poses is fast while coordinating with the breathing. Holding the posture is not the primary focus in this style. Here, with the Power Yoga Style, the Yoga Sequence for Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (One-Legged King Pigeon Pose) starts with Surya Namaskar A (Sun Salutation A) and Surya Namaskar B (Sun Salutation B), and gradually moves to stretching of the hamstrings with all the standing, seated, and supine yoga poses.
Since One-Legged King Pigeon Pose is a backbend posture, the importance of twists and forward bend yoga poses is seen in the yoga sequence. Twists are meant to open both the lower back and the hips, whereas the forward bends are mainly intended for the hamstrings and hips. This Power Yoga Sequence follows a flow through poses in a safe way in order to open the required muscles.
