Who’s that monkey, anyway?

When yogis hear ‘hanumanasana’ called out in class, they either rejoice or revile…the splits are coming!

Actually, Hanuman is the Monkey God in the Hindu pantheon, worshiped as a symbol of physical strength, perseverance, and devotion. A link to shed more insight into Hanuman:  www.pantheon.org/articles/h/hanuman.html

So next time you hear hanumanasana! put a smile on your face and rejoice..
