Stronger next time

Thanks to my yoga buddy M for the pics on the right.  My shoulder pressing pose is not yet perfect. There is still plenty of room for improvement for me here.  :)

From yogatipss.com

"Benefits :

• Improves the coordination and balance of the body
• Strengthens arms and shoulders
• Tones up your core muscles
• The shoulder pressing pose also nourishes the thyroid gland.
• It also boosts blood circulation to the abdomen and the legs. The pose also relives stress by massaging your internal organs.
• Due to better blood flow, this yogic asana also goes a long way in removing various pains and irritations throughout the body.

Beginner’s Tip :

If you are a beginner, feel free to use a bolster or block to support your buttocks. It would also be useful to have a yoga instructor guide you through the poses so as to escape mishaps."

  1. Nice one, Ms. Linnor. Now, if I could only learn how to do Yoga, too. It really looks interesting and all your blog posts about it is just amazing, especially when you're doing it with your family. :-)

  2. Ooh, I cant do that. I did yoga eight years ago (ashtanga) and even did yoga for pregnant women. I really had to go back to it again cuz i lack flexibility na and I am having all kinds of aches. I bet you dont have any back aches because of your practice

  3. Nice pose. You really got a lot of arm strength there. If only I got more time to attend the gym or do yoga. I'll try to research on some videos for beginners once I got some time.
