5 STEPS TO MAKE PIGEON POSE THE BEST HIP STRETCH

IS YOUR PIGEON LAZY?

PIGEON

DOES PIGEON POSE INCREASE FLEXIBILITY

Is Pigeon pose the best hip stretch? The quick answer, it depends how you do it. Somebody told me recently on instagram that I was blessed with open hips. Ha! If they’d only seen me when I first started practicing. My hips were so tight I needed not just one block, but block towers under my legs to come into almost any seated pose. So yes, twenty years later I am blessed with open hips, but only after doing the work to get them.

That said, each of us has a unique anatomy so the way my hips open may not be the way yours open. What I hear a lot however, is something like “I’ve been practicing for years and I still havent increased my flexibility. Likely this is due to the lack of technique – muscle engagements, and joint articulations that result in increased flexibility or range of motion.

WHY ALIGNMENT ACTUALLY MATTERS

In today’s video, I’ll show you a way of making Half Pigeon Pose the best hips stretch by using a block. Not only will this approach help to make this pose more accessible, but it will highlight your muscular patterns.

This is important, the reason alignment and technique matter is not because there is a right or wrong way to do a pose – that’s a completely fictisious concept because it requires that we define a context for what right and wrong means when it comes to making shapes. There is no agreed upon idea of right and wrong and so there can be no right alignment. However alignment matters within the context of increasing body awareness and the effecacy when striving to increase flexibility.

IF YOU DO PIGEON POSE WITHOUT ALTERING YOUR ALIGNMENT OR ENGAGING YOUR MUSCLES YOUR POSE WILL BE COUNTER PRODUCTIVE.

IF YOU DO PIGEON POSE WITHOUT ALTERING YOUR ALIGNMENT OR ENGAGING YOUR MUSCLES YOUR POSE WILL BE COUNTER PRODUCTIVE. IN ORDER TO MAKE PIGEON POSE THE BEST HIP STRETCH, YOU CAN FOLLOW THE 5 STEPS BELOW

This is because your body will always avoid stretching what is tight and it will always tend to stretch what is already flexible. Same is true for strength – when you do an action your body will use the strongest muscles by default, even if there are better muscles for the job. The body will always tend toward efficiency and path of least resistance unless you use the power of your will to strengthen what is weak and lengthen what is tight.

The following video is a short clip of one approach to make pigeon pose the best hip stretch that it can be! this approach is sure to take you out of your normal patterns. Practicing pigeon in this way may require more muscle activation, and be less “lazy” however it will produce the desired results of increasing flexibility.

5 STEPS TO INCREASE FLEXIBILITY WITH PIGEON POSE

Step 1 Pigeon Pose Best Hip Stretch

Step 1 - Start in Downward Facing Dog

 Place a block between your hands, at a slight diagonal, left side angled down. Lift your right leg to the sky and sweep your leg forward, externally rotating your inner thigh and resting your bent leg on the block.

step 2 Pigeon pose best hip stretch

Step 2: EVERT FRONT ANKLE

Flex and evert your front foot, grounding the pinkie toe into the mat and reaching forward with your big toe.

step 3 Pigeon pose best hip stretch

Step 3: Activate your legs.

Press your front shin and knee into the block to activate buttocks. Pulling your back knee forward to activate hip flexors – your hips will rise.

step 4 Pigeon pose best hip stretch

Step 4: Rotate thigh and pelvis inward

Tuck your back toes, lift your knee, spin your back thigh IN so your pelvis rotates in. Set your back knee down and use your toes to walk your back leg further back. 

step 5 Pigeon pose best hip stretch

Step 5: bow your torso toward your foot

 Without moving your hips, walk your hands and torso off to the left and fold, resting on blocks or your forearms. Stay here for five breaths and repeat other side.

THE PROBLEM WITH LAZY PIGEON

If you are doing lazy pigeon to rest and not necessarily to increase range of motion in the hips than there is no problem, you will get exactly what you came for. However, if your are trying to make pigeon pose the best hips stretch it can possibly be, then you need to go against your patterns, otherwise you will forever stretching what already is flexible, eventually leading to injury (most likely).

This version of pigeon is one of many that I use to shake up my patterns. For another variation I recommend my blog Pigeon Without Knee Pain.

Neck And Shoulder Pain Relief 3 Step Release

NECK & SHOULDER PAIN RELEIF

THE 3 STEP RELEASE

NECK & SHOULDERS

CAN SHOULDER TENSION CAUSE NECK PAIN?

When someone comes to me complaining of neck and shoulder pain, they are usually rubbing their upper shoulder/neck area which are known as the trapezius muscle. This muscle, on the surface seem to be the number cause for neck and shoulder pain but in my experience they are getting a bad wrap, and it’s actually the chest muscles that are to blame.

There are two postures that I share with them that 9/10 times provides immediate and long lasting release. One posture is Wild Thing, and the other is a Neck and Shoulders Release which I consider to be Wild Thing at the wall. The question is why do these postures receive neck pain?

What most people don’t realize is how connected the neck and shoulders really are. At this point I am sure you have heard about Fascia and how it wraps all of our muscles creating a unified – 1 muscle body. Have you ever opened up an orange and seen all the fibers between the sugary orange nectar? This is like fascia in a fruit, our muscles are the same way. However, we don’t need to get “NEW AGEY” to see that the neck is completely connected to the shoulders. Let’s just take a quick peak at the anatomy, shall we?

Shoulders Anatomy: What You Need To Know

There are 3 bones that make up the shoulders 

  1. Collar bone “Clavicle” 
  2. Arm Bone “Humerus”
  3. Shoulder Blade “Scapula”

There are multiple muscles that attach to one or more of these bones that also connect to your neck and/or head. One Muscle for example is called the Sternocleidomastoid and it runs from the top of your chest to the back of your neck and skull. This muscle when tight will pull the head forward and down toward your chest. 

The Pectorals Major and Minor Muscles attach to the chest, the arm bone, the shoulder blade, and the collar bone and these are our focus for today along with the Trapezius muscle. The Trapezius not only attaches to the neck, spine, skull and shoulder blade but they also attach to the collar bone. 

THE BIG SECRET

Truth is there are multiple causes for neck and shoulder pain, but the common everyday “rub your upper shoulders and neck” kind of pain is typically caused by tight or short pectoral muscles causing the collar bones to be pulled downward and the shoulder blades to rise up and be pulled forward towards the checks. The Trapezius which is often blamed then gets in a tug of war and tries to pull the shoulders back into place. AND WHAT DO YOU DO? You start rubbing the trapezius – asking it to relax. The Problem with that is, it is trying to help – it’s the chest muscles that need to relax. Release the Pectoral muscles and more often than not your neck and shoulder pain will go away. 

SO CAN SHOULDER TENSION CAUSE NECK PAIN? Absolutely! when we look at all the different muscles that attach to both the neck and shoulders, it’s obvious. 

In the September Immersion we worked through the 3 primary shoulder actions through out a 75 minute class and then we learned how to apply them directly to wild thing! Each immersion practice focuses on a different yoga pose in order to develop a greater understanding of our body. Join the next livestream immersion and get lifetime access to all videos when you sign up today!

SOLUTION TO NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN

If you have have neck and shoulder pain on a regular basis, or if you simply want to prevent chronic discomfort than I suggest including at least 1 pectoral stretch in your daily yoga practice. What if you can’t get on your mat each day? That is no problem, you can stretch your Pectoralis muscles anywhere so long as you have a wall to put your hand on! 

Right now as you read this your arms are probably in front of you correct? They are for more of our day – this causes the shoulders to pull forward, the simple soloution is we just need to pull our shoulders back. In the video Below I will share with you the 3 Steps to Releasing your Neck and Shoulder Pain! 

BOUNDLESS FREEDOM

The September Immersion includes the full length class to Wild Thing Pose as well as other peak poses with a heavy emphasis on Shoulder Bio-Mechanics! In this package you will get 12,  75 minute Yoga Classes, 4 of which include guided meditations! So, If you want to get to know your shoulders than this is THE immersion to practice! 

THE 3 STEP RELEASE

The pictures below are from the blog on Wild Thing, The actions are exactly the same at the wall as they are on the ground but each posture provides a slightly different benefits. The benefit at the wall is that you do not need a yoga mat or to get down on the ground, you can do it right at work or wherever you are. The Benefit to Wild Thing on the ground is that it adds a layer of required strength to the back body – this will further support a release of the neck since the back body muscles tend to be weak for most of us.

Step 1 - Elevate the shoulder

Step 1 is to lift your shoulder up toward the ear – this is vital in range of motion and helping your pectoralis muscles to lengthen and to initiate strength from your trapezius.

Step 2: retract shoulder blade

 Next, move your shoulder back (retract the shoulder blade toward the spine) this will recruit your back muscles and stretch the Pectoralis major muscle in particular.

Step 3: Rotate Shoulder Outward

Externally rotate the arm bone – this will pull the top of the shoulder back stretching pec minor. It also will help to release a muscle called sub scapulars which tends to cause neck pain.

WHAT NEXT?

Short term fixes are great to help us get through our day but ultimately we need to be creating positive and supportive muscular patterns that hold our body the way it wants to be held even if our mind is stressed out from the daily grind. The best part of self care is that it FEELS GOOD! So if you are ready to jump into your yoga practice 3 days a week and take care of your body check out the upcoming Live Immersion Here

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT THE LIVE IMMERISONS

Matt‘s classes are phenomenal- if you ever have the ability to practice with him, make use of it!! He has a very unique talent of combining anatomy, yoga philosophy and his own perspective into a super intense package of knowledge which is fun AND easy to understand. I enjoyed the April immersion a lot as it was a great way of deepening my own practice and broadening my horizon, especially as the lifetime access allows you to take classes
as often as you want- trust me, you will want to take them again! I cant wait for next month’s classes and highly recommend everyone to take the May pass and joining in on the journey.

~Nadja Kyra King - @nadja_kyra

Matt’s April pass was a journey. It was more than just the physical exploration of my practice but also helped me explore my spiritual practice. It was very nice to have a consistent practice during this time of uncertainty. If you are looking for a practice to ground yourself I would highly recommend exploring the Live Immersion of the Month.
~Amanda Barnes Salowsky

Covid_19 bought Matt into my home and my yoga practice. This last month I have learn’t so much it has deepened my practice and my understanding of the anatomy & biomechanics and how we use both in every asana we practice. He has also helped in my teaching, ie asking my students to think about the foot as a tripod “big toe, pinkie toe, heel ” I never imagined I would learn so much from the immersion.

WILD THING YOGA POSE 3 SHOULDER ACTIONS

FLIP DOG DILEMMA

3 SHOULDER ACTIONS FOR WILD THING YOGA POSE

WILD THING

IS the popular yoga pose “FLIP DOG” WORTH IT?

If you practice or have been to a modern vinyasa or power yoga class than you know that flip dog is a popular posture that is called out somewhere toward the middle or end of the yoga class as an option. I have yet to be in a class where the instructor explains what flip dog is or how to get in to it. So how do you do the pose?

RISK VS REWARD

If you have practiced with me than you know that I am not a “there is only one way to do a pose” kind of teacher, but more of a “one or two ways not to do the pose”. The way NOT to do a pose is one that presents high risk of injury. While I don’t think flip dog poses a massive immediate threat on the shoulder girdle I do think that the way people are approaching it presents a higher than necessary risk on the gleno-humeral joint (shoulder) with out any real reward that would outweigh the risk. This is an important distinction, within the physical practice of yoga or anything else for that matter there is a risk factor that is unavoidable but when we weigh the potential benefits we often still make the choice to proceed. We do this everytime we sit in a car or board an airplane – the risk is catastrophic but the potential gain is worth it to us that we take the risk. So what is the risk of flip dog and what is the potential gain?

The way most people execute the yoga pose we call “flip dog” is more or less like reverse table top but on one hand and that but hand is turned out. To me the extreme extension of the shoulder is fine when baring weight on both hands and fully activating the posterior shoulder muscles (the muscles around the shoulder blades. Take away one hand and enter the pose from down dog and most people wind up punching the head of the humerus (arm bone) forward, putting the pressure in the anterior (front) part of the glenohumeral joint capsule. there are ligaments there that keep the arm bone snuggled into the shoulder socket – putting pressure on them starts to destabilize them and over time this could cause a knocking of the arm bone in the shoulder socket causing all sorts of soft tissue damage.

SOLUTION

First off, Don’t freak out, doing a flip dog here and there is not going to kill you, but there is an easy solution that still allows you to participate in this section of class, simply do Wild Thing Prep (shown as the starting position in the video below, and rise up to wild thing). Flipping over from down dog makes it easy to over load the joint as the weight of your body and gravity are falling downward. RISING UP you will be forced to use the muscles of your shoulders, hips, and back and you are less likely to have enough stretch to put yourself in a compromising position.

In the September Immersion we worked through the 3 primary shoulder actions through out a 75 minute class and then we learned how to apply them directly to wild thing! Each immersion practice focuses on a different yoga pose in order to develop a greater understanding of our body.  

We start in a prep position and line up the shoulder for maximum muscle recruitment and minimal joint risk, and then we try our best to maintain these actions as we rise up. You will see some further details in the video about how to line up your legs and how to shift your weigh out of your hand as well in order to utilize your hips and back which are much stronger than the shoulder.

You will see some further details in the video about how to line up your legs and how to shift your weigh out of your hand as well in order to utilize your hips and back which are much stronger than the shoulder.   

Wild Thing Shoulders: 3 Actions 

Step 1 - Elevate the shoulder

Step 1 is to allow the shoulder to come toward the ear, this makes step 2 more possible by releasing any of the muscles that are trying to stabilize the shoulder blade and this allows for mobility. As a result your shoulder will be stuck in front of your chest with very little access to back body muscles. So step 1 is really a preliminary step in order to access step 2 & 3.

Step 2: retract shoulder blade

Next, move your shoulder back (retract the shoulder blade toward the spine) this will recruit your back muscles bringing you greater stability while you rise up. The more you retract your shoulder blade the less you will stress the shoulder joint so focus heavily on this action, though it will take time for your pectoral muscles to develop flexibility.

Step 3: Rotate Shoulder Outward

To Stabilize the shoulder joint we then rotate the arm bone outward. This action winds up moving the shoulder blade down your back (shoulder away from ear) but this time instead of your front body muscles pulling it down, the back body muscles are at work. As you rise you will be able to rotate outward more, this will nudge your rib cage forward forming a deeper back bend. 

WHAT NEXT?

Of course I didn’t mention anything here about what is happening in the hips/buttocks, back or core. Every yoga pose is a full participation with your physical body and therefor requires more than just knowledge of your shoulders. However, We have to take everything one step at a time if we are to fully integrate these techniques into our body and be able to masterfully access them throughout our daily life. I suggest focusing on these actions every time you have a chance to do flip dog in a class – flip to a seated position and prepare your self for wild thing.

When you sign up for the immersion you will gain access to an exclusive members area of theyogimatt.com. When you are logged in your will have access and be able to watch the livestream that day, and any previously aired livestreams from that month.

ARE THERE RECURRING PAYMENTS?

NO. You are paying for access to one month of classes, after that you will be provided a discounted rate should you want to continue practicing regularly. You will NOT be automatically billed, THIS IS A ONE TIME PAYMENT that gives you access to the classes in the respective month that you purchase. 

WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE THE LIVE TIME?

NO PROBLEM AT ALL! The Immersion consists of yogis worldwide in various time zones. This is why you have LIFETIME and UNLIMITED access. You can practice when it is convenient for you. You will receive emails throughout the week to keep you on track and keep you inspired to practice. There is a facebook group where you will here from other members, be able to ask questions and stay connected. Both the emails from me and the group will keep you committed to your practice, even if you cannot practice live.

IS THIS TOO ADVANCED FOR ME?

Matt specializes in teaching ALL Levels yoga practices, providing modifications, and options throughout each class. These immersions are suitable for anyone with as little as 1-3 months yoga practice or more. You do not need to have a regular practice, nor do you need to be flexibly or strong. First time yogis are welcomed so long as you have no major injuries. Each class focuses on a different yoga pose in order to gain a greater understanding of our body within the asana practice.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT THE LIVE IMMERISONS

Matt‘s classes are phenomenal- if you ever have the ability to practice with him, make use of it!! He has a very unique talent of combining anatomy, yoga philosophy and his own perspective into a super intense package of knowledge which is fun AND easy to understand. I enjoyed the April immersion a lot as it was a great way of deepening my own practice and broadening my horizon, especially as the lifetime access allows you to take classes
as often as you want- trust me, you will want to take them again! I cant wait for next month’s classes and highly recommend everyone to take the May pass and joining in on the journey.

~Nadja Kyra King - @nadja_kyra

Matt’s April pass was a journey. It was more than just the physical exploration of my practice but also helped me explore my spiritual practice. It was very nice to have a consistent practice during this time of uncertainty. If you are looking for a practice to ground yourself I would highly recommend exploring the Live Immersion of the Month.
~Amanda Barnes Salowsky

Covid_19 bought Matt into my home and my yoga practice. This last month I have learn’t so much it has deepened my practice and my understanding of the anatomy & biomechanics and how we use both in every asana we practice. He has also helped in my teaching, ie asking my students to think about the foot as a tripod “big toe, pinkie toe, heel ” I never imagined I would learn so much from the immersion.

SAMADHI

Dissolving into the state of oneness.

Samadhi

Samadhi

Samadhi is the experience we have when the mind realizes the totality of itself – that it is one part of an infinitely grander whole. Using an analogy from one of my teachers, Alan Finger – Consiousness is like the ocean. When the ocean swells and crashes upon the shore, drops of water fly up in the air. These drops are still the ocean separated by time and space. We are those drops in relationship to the bigger more expansive ocean of consciousness. For brief moments in time we arise and take shape in the form of this body, collecting unique experiences in our mind and forming beliefs and identity. In meditation, the mind has the opportunity to realize this and come back to the awareness of all that is. In those moments when the mind returns to the understanding that it is simply a drop that is apart of the ocean, there is a feeling of indescribable goodness that overwhelms our being, yogis call this Samadhi. 

How Do We Reach Samadhi?

Samadhi is the result of your Sadhana (yogic practices). For the past month, I have been offering you teachings out of the yoga sutras, weaving them through the live classes, and sharing them here on this blog. We’ve discussed  “Abhyasa and Vairagya” and “Burning Samskara” amongst many others. Why are these practices necessary to experiencing Samadhi? Samadhi is the state of being when the intellect or budhi lets go of duality and releases into the realization that it is one with all things. The intellect is incredible, it allows us to understand life on the physical plane, dividing, defining, and systematically looking for like and unlike in everything. The Intellect’s ability to separate is incredible. We have spent our entire lives training the intellect, and therefor have become really good at separation. Unity or Oneness requires that the intellect surrenders to the reality that it is one of many tools. This requires that our identity or ego also surrenders to the fullness of reality that we are yes unique individuals that are a part of the magnificent power of nature, not separate but yet a thread woven into the fabric of something much grander. The Ego gets scared of the idea that it is not most important, so you have to remind it that this means it is not less than, it is actually far more than it thinks, it is a manifestation of the vast ocean of Awareness.

Maybe you want to experience the state of oneness with the universe and are ready to jump in but where to start? The Yoga Sutras are a guide map to this, but if you are going to practice one thing only its Self Reflection, Swadyaya. You can practice Self Reflection in your asana (physical practice) by observing the sensations of your body before, during and after each posture. You can do this through Pranayama, observation of the vital energy that pulses through your system. There are endless practices of Self Awareness. Start with the live classes from the Month of March and join me for the asana and meditation practices throughout the month of April. I am committed to sharing dharma talks to inspire self awareness in order to support the dissolution of the intellect, and mergence into the state of oneness. We will be doing this together, with he support of the global community to give us power and strength. 

OneNess 

In a time when everyone is feeling separateness, moving inward to the state of oneness is more important than ever. Underneath the layers of intellect and ego that disconnects us from the whole, exists One undivided consciousness that permeates all things. It is always there, omnipresent, and it pervades all aspects of our being. The only thing standing in our way of experiencing it is the need to hold up the illusion that we have created of truth – the need to know in order to feel safe. Instead find comfort in the unknown, vast potential that is at the core of your being. Thanks for tapping in with me Enjoy your practice!

Key Actions to Balance in Flying Pigeon Pose

Flying pigeon

Flying Pigeon: Balance

Flying Pigeon is an exceptionally challenging pose for several reasons, strength, balance, flexibility for starters. Learning to balance on the hands requires tremendous strength in the flexors of the wrist, or what I call in my Handstand Trainings, “The Breaks”. Appropriately named because strength in the flexors of the wrist are what stop you from falling when on your hands. You will hear me in the video talking about gripping the ground, this is the action that will turn on the breaks. In the Live Stream on 3-25-2020 that this video is taken from, I went over a little drill that you can try out. On all fours, grip your fingers into the ground. With one hand, challenge the opposite hand by trying to pick up the fingers off the ground. Let’s say your right hand is on the ground, right hand try’s its best to dig its fingers into the earth. Left hand try’s to pick right hand’s fingers up. Switch rolls. Reading about this won’t do anything so you will have to get it in your body to really get it…did it? great! let’s continue. Whenever you are on your hands in your yoga practice maintain this type of activation to build strength in your breaks over time.

Flexibility

I still remember my first flying pigeon, I was in Elena Browers Anusara Yoga class, My hips were super tight back then. She had some great techniques to help us open our hips, many of which I still implement into my own practice and share in my online trainings , and live streams.  In one of my recent articles on compass pose I spoke of the topic that flexibility requires technique more than it does forcing repetitive stretches. To increase flexibility for flying pigeon you need to target several muscle groups which I call the 4 Quadrants of the hips – All 4 quadrants (front, back, inside, backside) can be targeted within your yoga practice by activating them isometrically through the postures. If you have been practicing live or in person with me than you are very familiar with this approach, and if you haven’t felt the benefits, you will soon with repetition. To give you one example to try, get into warrior 2 and pull your feet toward each other, like you are trying bunch up the mat under your feet. This activates the inner quadrant of the back leg, and the back quadrant of the front leg. Over time this will create health in these muscle groups which will directly increase your range of motion. 

Strength

When learning this posture, it is very helpful to pull the back knee into the chest which will activate the hip flexors and lower abdominals which helps in two ways. First it helps to keep the shin on the arm if the front hip is tighter. Second it helps keep the weight of you body forward which is required to maintain the balance in the posture. 

This postures can be deceptively challenging so go easy on your self if you find it incredibly difficult. Try these tips, and remember that strength and flexibility require technique and repetition. Enjoy!
