Day 23 Eye of the Needle Pose

 

 

 

 

 Eye of the Needle is a supine (lying-down) yoga pose that relieves stiffness in the outer hips and lower back. If you spend a lot of time sitting, those muscles become tight and short due to the lack of use. This pose can feel great at the end of a long day of sitting at work, school, or in a car or airplane.

This pose also goes by other English names, including "Knee to Ankle Pose," "Reclining One-Legged Pigeon," and "Dead Pigeon Pose." It is often taught near the end of a yoga class as a relaxing way to soothe and open the spine, hips,

and low back.

BENEFITS:

This pose stretches and opens the outer hips and low back, which increases the range of motion in the lower body. It also improves circulation throughout the legs, hips, and back, which can help reduce pain caused by stiffness and inactivity. In addition, this pose can help you keep the entire low back limber. It is a soothing counter-pose to backbends and spinal twists. Drawing your limbs in toward your torso causes your mind to naturally turn inward, which helps calm your thoughts, relieve stress, and soothe anxiety. Eye of the Needle Pose also increases blood flow to the pelvis and surrounding organs, which helps reduce digestive discomforts and menstrual pain in women.
