If you practice Yoga you will know the asana “Eka pada rajakapotasana” or pigeon pose. I take this pose as inspiration to create my new yoga asana embroidery pattern.
Pigeon Pose or Eka Pada Rajakapotasana
Yoga is a discipline that balances body and mind through the combination of asanas, breathing and meditation. One of that pose is the pigeon pose or Eka Pada Rajakapotasana. Its name is in Sanskrit and its meaning is: EKA one, PADA leg, RAJA royal/king, KAPOTA dove and ASANA posture. As the chest opens outwards as if we were a pigeon, this asana takes its name from this bird.
Benefits of practicing Rajakapotasana
As a consequence of practicing the Rajakapotasana asana has many benefits, for example: Opening the hips, respiratory improvements (thanks to the opening of the chest), works various muscle groups, increases flexibility, helps reduce anxiety and many more. Also, you will be able to see your posture when sitting improved, and this is just another example.
Without doubt it’s a very visual and recognizable pose, that’s why I thought of it to be inspired by my latest asana embroidery pattern.
The Rajakapotasana embroidery pattern
In the tranquility of her home and surrounded by those objects that she like the most, our protagonist has taken out the mat and is practicing Rajakapotasana. If you have managed to do this asana or if you are in the process, you will like to have this embroidered yoga pattern.
Perfect for embroidering between session and session, or a gift to that friend who encouraged you to practice Yoga. It’s an easy pattern to follow, with full crosses and some linear stitching.
As a result of my love for Yoga and cross stitch, this new design creates a trilogy of patterns dedicated to meditation and yoga asanas. To conclude, a new form to meditate and improve your cross stitch skills while you are stitching.
