This is the 3rd class in a series that began with Flying Pigeon Pose: Preparation, and moved you through Flying Pigeon Pose: Going Deeper. This class takes you in and out of full flying pigeon pose or eka pada galavasana. Tracey's smile and infectious energy help you make your way through this vigorous power yoga flow and into one of the more challenging arm balances, requiring significant hip and back flexibility as well as core strength. Have fun getting to the peak pose!

I agree with duroc017 below. This last class in the series could have been a little longer to allow for more of a warm up and deeper stretches before going into the peak pose. I did this series over three consecutive days to see if the consistency helped. The first class was good, the second was great, I really felt ready to attempt the peak pose because of the thorough warm up and poses/balances that almost get you to flying pigeon pose. But the third class didn't have enough before lifting up into it. Now that I know what the three in the series are like, I think the third is not necessary. The second left me better prepared for it.

Thanks for the feedback. This will be helpful if we create new peak pose challenges.

Oh my goodness! Thank you Tracy.
I only tried this two day ago and it felt like my back leg was nailed to the floor. I was convinced that I would never experience the lift of Flying Pigeon. Today, it just happened. It wasn't graceful, maybe clumsy but I did it and I'm so happy.
Isn't yoga such a wonderful teacher about life?
