Yoga Asana of the Month (November)

It's a brand new month and a brand new yoga pose to help you strengthen your body and stay healthy. The weather is starting to cool off, so why not step up your practice with a more vigorous posture that makes you break a sweat? This month's asana is dolphin pose, named for the bobbing motion in the posture that mimics dolphins as they swim, poking their noses in and out of the water. If you can't initially do the bobbing motion, don't worry. After a few weeks of practicing your body will get stronger. Do as many reps as you can comfortably, then rest in child's pose for several breaths.

Looks like November is a month of change for your blog, too. Looks good, "Angelic Monkey."

But, where is the pose? Maybe it is just my computer; all I see is a black box.

Hi Shannon. Thanks for noticing the name change. It's been quite a while since I've lived in Shanghai, so I figured I could drop the name.

(and thanks for the heads up on the video not working! I think the link has moved, so I linked a different video).

Hi Angel, thanks for all the beautiful comments you've left the past months on my blog. Sorry that I am just now getting over here...I love your spirit on the blog and know that I love reading what you write! I am just short on time to get around to everyone's bloggies but I love the vegan yogi that you are :)

Averie, thank you for those beautiful words! I remember you saying a few weeks ago that you comment on 50+ blogs a day, so I totally understand!! I am so grateful for inventions like Blogger so us vegan yogi chicks can unite!

This one is harder than the usual postures you blog about. I guess you're getting harder on us :D
