Lion Pose, Simhasana, is said to cure bad breath, clean the tongue and improve speech and enunciation. It is such fun and a fantastic release of tension and energy. The ‘Roaring’ part of it comes in the teaching of it. First the students sit face to face, even across the room. Half of the class does it while the other half watches. They cannot believe what they see. It is always good for an uproarious laugh. Lion tip: make sure that your lips are moist before stretching them open all the way. In the winter time when our lips get dry, it is easy enough to split your lip if you open too far and too quickly, which I have done (in the middle of a public yoga demonstration).
