Hi Youthful Yogis!
Today the Youthful Yogis Blog continues with its "guest writer program". As you can see, I'm a chicken....and I am very happy to be find a place where I can express myself freely!

You recently heard from Frank--I know, such an original name, right? Anyway, Frank the dog was pretty proud of the fact that he was mentioned in a recent Youthful Yogis Q & A entry (you can find it on the left side of the Youthful Yogis homepage). I admit, Frank and I aren't such great friends but I do love reading the questions and answers on this blog, especially when they mention chickens!

"Chickens rule!!"

And that brings me to today's topic...well, sort of. As you probably know, many fantastic yoga poses are named after animals. I wish I could say there's a yoga pose named after a chicken but, sadly, I don't think such a pose exists.

"I'm pretty sure I'm doing yoga right now!"

Sure, Mr. rooster up there might look like he's doing a yoga pose but, honestly, there is no pose named after him.

"No fair!"

Let's look on the bright side, Youthful Yogis...even though there are no poses based on the extreme beauty of hens or the bossy confidence of roosters, there are plenty of poses named after many of our fine feathered friends. Let's take a look!


Pigeon Pose


Eagle Pose


Crow Pose

Finally, I'd like to show you stork pose...and since I don't have a picture of a human being doing the pose, I'll have to get old Mr. Rooster to help out instead!


Stork Pose...?!

Well, that's about it for today, Youthful Yogis. It's time for me to go nibble on some grain, scratch around a little and get back to my nest! I hope you've enjoyed looking at some bird-inspired yoga poses today. Try them and let me know what you think!

Hopefully, I'll be invited back to the Youthful Yogis Blog as a guest writer soon. In the meantime, here are a few up and coming authors who I know are trying to get themselves on the blog...keep your eyes out for them!

"Rock on, y'all"

"It's so dry out here...does anyone have any eye drops!!

"Me, writing a blog?!" 

OK, that last guy may not make the cut as a visiting writer. But hey, you never know!

Have a great day, Youthful Yogis. And as the little chicks like to say...
