King Pigeon




Recent or chronic knee, hip, or back injury: King Pigeon Pose puts significant stress on the knees, hips, and lower back. Individuals with recent or chronic injuries or conditions in these areas should avoid or modify the pose to avoid further strain or discomfort. Pregnancy: Pregnant individuals should approach King Pigeon Pose with caution. As the pose involves deep backbending and stretching of the hips, it can put excessive pressure on the abdominal area. It's best to consult with a qualified prenatal yoga instructor for modified variations that are safe during pregnancy. Herniated disc or spinal conditions: People with herniated discs or other spinal conditions should be cautious with deep back bending poses like King Pigeon Pose. Excessive extension of the spine may aggravate the condition. Neck or shoulder injury: The full expression of King Pigeon Pose involves reaching back and clasping the feet or ankle with the hands crown of the head on the floor. This movement can strain the neck and shoulders, particularly for those with existing injuries or limitations in these areas.
