Pigeon is definitely on my list... a few years ago I made a commitment to pigeon. I did it every other day for a month... at the end of the month I could lay down on the floor over my knee. I can still do it...I am still committed to it. (It was my yogini's practice theme for the month.)
I also do
Ardha Matsyendrasana, and I concentrate on pulling my knee towards me so I feel the hip. This is one is my 2nd favorite behind pigeon.
Parsvottanasana - for the hammies.
Supta Padangusthasana - I use the opposite hand and pull my leg towards the opposite shoulder...wowsa!! this one hurts.
Malasana - no, I can't do it without holding onto something.
If you do any others, please let me know. But, these are my series. I put some downward dog in there...and up dog and cobra. I am "thinking" about getting my yoga certification....but it's expensive.
Currently, using JC HCC, Too Shea, CK and CCSS, RR or LOOB or MOP-C.
CK is the one!!
as of 6/17/10 - I have to add Joico!

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous
