Who doesn’t love puppies......and yoga?

A dear, sweet student of mine showered me with such an adorable gift that I am compelled to share it with all of you...each month. You guessed it, it’s a yoga calendar with a twist: Puppy Poses!
Our puppy model for January is named Hoover and he is demonstrating Virabhadrasana II (Warrior 2). Hoover has such an adorable drishti (gaze) over his front paw! 
Puppy Notes about Vira II:
  • Strengthens the arches, ankles knees and thighs
  • Stretches the hips and shoulders
  • Broadens the chest
  • Increases lung capacity
  • Lengthens spine
  • Enhances muscular endurance
  • Stimulates digestion
Could the reason it is named Warrior because it builds focus, develops willpower and stimulates the mind- what every strong Warrior needs in order to succeed?
The next time you do Virabhadrasana II, think of Hoover and let yourself smile from the inside out.
