Anshuka noted down the benefits of the asana – she added that practising the asana helps in improving posture and alignment, stretching hip flexors and lower back, helping with digestion and peristalsis, and helping with urinary disorders and stimulating internal organs. Take a look at the video here.

Anshuka shared the benefits of the Pigeon pose on her post as well - “Pigeon Pose, also known as the king of hip openers, is super helpful to stretch and increase flexibility in the hip and lower back muscles. It also increases the range of motion in the leg and hip areas. It aids to reduce stiffness in the back and shoulders and opens up the chest muscles which in turn improves breathing.” Anshuka further shared a pro tip that people suffering from injury in spine, leg, hips or shoulders should avoid practising this asana.
