Yoga Centre Pose of the Month: Virasana

In case you missed my previous post about YogaCentre.com and #PoseoftheMonth, you can find out more about these online yoga videos here. Now that we're already a week into December, I figured I'd better share this month's pose with you before I miss out (like I did last month, oops...).

Below you'll find some screen shots of Virasana or Hero Pose, December's Pose of the Month and you can check out the full video online here. This is an extremely beneficial pose to practice especially for runners or anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet.

In addition to the benefits listed above, this is a great pose to practice to cure rheumatic pain in the knees as well as flat feet (Light on Yoga, BKS Iyengar).  Be sure to share your #poseofthemonth with me on Facebook, Instagram and YogaCentre.com! I can't wait to see your Virasana variations :)
