"The Pose* of The Tiger"

As our Auburn Tigers have hit the practice fields to get in shape and prep for football season, I can't help but think about the few lbs I put on last week from sipping cocktails and eating delish food while on vacation. If you are looking to update your yoga moves, or just stretch out from a long work day, try out the Tiger Pose (also known as VYAGHRASANA). 

1. On your hands and knees in Table pose, inhale the right knee to the forehead, rounding the spine. 2. Exhale reach the right foot up towards the ceiling, arching the spine and looking up at the ceiling.3. Inhale the forehead to knee and exhale the foot up 4-8 times.  4. To release: exhale the knee back down to the floor into Table pose.5. Repeat on other side.
(The Tiger pose warms and stretches the back muscles and spine. Tiger pose strengthens the core body and stimulates the nervous, lymphatic and reproductive systems.)
