Fluid Strength Artwork
Season 1 - Episode 3

Pigeon Flow

60 min - Practice


Have faith that your hard work is going to work for you. Lydia leads a vigorous, fluid class focused on finding space in the hips and moving with self-compassion. We warm the body in Side Plank variations and standing flows with arm balance options in preparation for our peak pose, Eka Pada Rajkapotasana (One-Legged King Pigeon). Then we move into a back strengthening and bending sequence, preparing the core to support our work lifting into Wheel. We cool down in soft twists and forward bends before a brief viloma pranayama practice. You will feel relaxed, whole, and supported.

Loved your invigorating class and all your cues and counter poses. You took pigeon pose to a whole new level.
Christel B That is the best news Christel! So happy to hear it. Warmth, Lydia 
I agree with Christel. This was an invigorating class! 

Been playing around with this mantra: "enjoy what you can't do, but be present with what you love."  Obviously, I love yoga and all of this healthy insight. 
I resonated with "these are just suggestions" and again with "this is your body and this is your practice".   Yet, your comment about wholeness was a mind-opener. 

David Goldstein So wonderful to hear how the language I have learned from my studies in trauma informed practice have landed for you David. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Warmth always, Lydia 
This practice is the yoke, it really has it all. Connects the mind, body and spirit. Thank you for another beautiful chorigraphed dance. It seemed to sequence what my body was needing transition in-between the poses and the flows. I really felt the vibrations from the residual of this practice. Not my first time doing it and defiantly won't be my last. 
Loving the asymmetrical backbends and all the hip sensations. :) Body feels greeted with welcoming smiles. 
Morgan S Hi Morgan! So wonderful to see your image in front of the mountains here! Happy solstice my friend, and thank you so much for sharing the effects of both this practice and how you showed up for it. I'm inspired. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! 
With love,
