Eka Pada Rajakapotasana


Bank of the Niagara River only a few minutes walk from our home looking west to Canada. West to Canada? Yep, we are so far north here that Canada is to our west! Beautiful day and perfect for Stop, Drop, and Yoga.

The posture is Eka Pada Rajakapotasana also known as Pigeon. This particular version is Mermaid (more appropriately Merman or Poseidon) and is a prep pose for King Pigeon which has the body turned forward and both hands overhead gasping the toes of the rear leg. I’m looking forward to that.

My son John was happily engaged in the moment working on his technique for skipping stones. Admittedly, he’s got a way to go as well but definitely enjoying the journey!
