Yoga Asana of the Month (September)

Another animal pose? Yup, you guessed it. This month I'm focusing on cow face pose (gomukhasana). The pose itself doesn't resemble a cow's face at all, but it sure is a good stretch for your body. When in this pose you will be stretching your legs, arms, shoulders and chest. If you can't get your legs stacked on top of each other like in the video, try placing a folded blanket under your bum to elevate the sitting bones.

Nice posting. Do you know about these yoga books?

The Gita - yes, I read it in university for an Indian philosophy course I was taking at the time. The Shiva Samhita - no, I haven't heard of that one. Are they both free on your site??
