Yoga Asana of the Month (October)

This month's yoga pose is kid friendly, but fun for adults too! Butterfly pose (purna titali asana) is a great hip opener and can help to relieve tension in the legs. To begin start with your feet together so the bottoms of your feet are facing each other. Pull your ankles as close to your body as possible. Keeping your back straight, unlike the child in the video ;) begin to wiggle your legs up and down like a butterfly's wings. If you can't get much movement in your legs on the first try, don't worry. After a few days your thighs will loosen up allowing you to move deeper into the posture.
