Jane: A San Francisco Restaurant Stop

We had just traveled all around the San Francisco area.

Pigeon pose is a sweet hip release that often brings on a lot of emotions. This is perfectly normal so do not be astonished if you feel a little emotional during this pose. Pigeon lengthens the psoas muscle in the back leg. This muscle is the only muscle that starts in the back of the…
