Kapotasana is the lesser-known of the ”king pigeon” poses in yoga. The better-known version (eka pada raja kapotasana) actually translates to “one-legged king pigeon." This variation is a super deep backbend, which requires flexibility of the hips, back, and shoulders.
Follow this sequence of poses that help prep your body and ease you into the full pose. As with all deep openers, move slowly and take things one breath at a time. The pose will come to you when you are ready and not a moment sooner, so take deep breaths and enjoy the journey!
