Master Class: One-Legged King Pigeon Pose IV

Featured Issue: May 2010

Sequence created by Barbara Benagh

When you see someone perform Eka Pada Rajakapotasana IV (One-Legged King Pigeon Pose IV), you're witnessing many hours of practice and refinement of other poses to prepare for this one. The pose requires deep hip and spinal extension, supple shoulders, and a steady core. For the May issue of Yoga Journal, Master Class columnist Barbara Benagh created a sequence to prepare your body for this master pose, and here we present a video demonstration of those steps, which includes instruction for performing Ayurchakrasana (Wheel of Life Pose) and Eka Pada Supta Vajrasana (One-Legged Reclining Thunderbolt Pose).

The exercise instructions and advice presented in this video are designed for people who are in good health and physically fit. They are not intended to substitute for medical counseling. The creators, producers, participants, and distributors of Yoga Journal disclaim any liability for loss or injury in connection with the exercises shown or the instruction and advice expressed.
