Benefits: This sometimes comical pose is very beneficial.  It's a great way to relax and ease tensions in your jaw, cheeks, forehead, and neck. It can expel toxins you've accumulated overnight when performed first thing in the morning.  It can relieve stress at any time. 

How it's done:

  • Begin in Hero Pose. 
  • Inhale deeply. 
  • On exhale, open your mouth wide, stick out your tongue, eyes look up, and make a breathy roar!
  • Variation: wide legged hero pose, with hands on the mat between knees, with fingers pointing behind you. 
  • Variation: As you exhale, you leap forward as if to pounce.
