May is my favorite month for pigeon, after dull skies clear and the Earth awakens with green things poking out of muck. Sometimes you may feel like staying low to the earth in the reclining version. When there is additional preparation of shoulder openings and back bending, you may feel like practicing some of the variations, in which the chest appears to be bursting with the pride of a pigeon. Either way it’s a perfect asana to open hips and ground to open your heart and to the sky. If you have any knee problems, try the Supta or on your back version. Feel free to add a nice twist.
Drink the breath-nectar from the sky. And don’t forget to say hello to the pigeons in the neighborhood.
