Drinking & Yoga, Still Go Together

Research confirms that drinking gives you the same benefits as yoga.  My Godfather sends me some hilarious emails... and after Da Bears beat the Dolphins last night on Thursday Night Football - which my son and I watched with a case of beer and 3 dozen hot wings here at home -  I can strongly relate to Savasana this morning.  I've mentioned previously (link here) how alcohol and yoga go well together.   This further illustrates different aspects.

शवासन Savasana (AKA relaxation pose)
Position of total relaxation.    


Balasana (AKA childs pose)
Position that brings the sensation of peace and calm.  


Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (AKA Bridge pose)
This position calms the brain and heals tired legs.


Marjayasana (AKA Cat pose)
Position stimulates the midriff area and the spinal column.  

हलसन Halasana (AKA plow pose)
Excellent for back pain and insomnia.  

Advadanta Sirsasana (AKA dolphin Pose)
Excellent for the shoulder area, thorax, legs, and arms.  

शलभासन Salambhasana (AKA locust Pose)
Great exercise to stimulate the lumbar area, legs, and arms.
