Lions and Roaring Rabbits! Oh My!

iyengarlionposebunnyLet’s take another look at a fun posture, good for opening us up for spring.  “The Roaring Lion Posture (whose original Indian name is Simhasana) in Yoga is suitable for people of all ages and types (including old and weak) because it is relatively easy to perform. The posture is sometimes referred to as Bhairavasana . . .  reallionpose copybunnyThe posture gets its name because the face of the person performing it resembles the face of a Roaring Lion (Simha Mudra or Lion Face Gesture) because of the open mouth and extended tongue.”  Kind of fun to combine lion pose with some spring bunnies . . . Everyone is doing it!

A Nia “Play date”

Yes — we all called to see what the other would wear!

A fantastically fun time playing together at Nia tonight!  Notice the amazing color coordination of Erin, Nancy, Gail, Sue, Kristine, and Monique!  We danced, laughed, kicked, and sweated our way through — total immersion in joy.  BTW, this group can make an amazing array of animal noises — which we featured during our final song, when we played our way through every yoga pose with an animal name I could think of  . . . “dead bug”/”happy baby” was a particular hit.  They are also capable of some amazing cow noises.  It was just like being back on the Zakarison farm, north of Pullman, where I grew up!  Nice job, “Women In Nia” (“WIN”)!
