Eka Pada Galavasana (Flying Pigeon)

The essence of the Sanskrit term svātantrya could be described as “self-weaving," as it's associated with the freedom of coming to know our core self. Regular asana practice helps us to embody this wisdom and make it a reality, especially with expansive poses such as eka pada galavasana (flying pigeon). We'll create the space we need within the body in order to "fly" by linking the breath to movement and opening the hips. All the while, expert tips and prop suggestions will keep us safe and grounded.

Props (suggested): 2 yoga blocks.
