Yoga and Cats… they seem to go together

August 1, 2014 2 comments

I don’t know if you have this problem, but whenever I’m practicing Yoga at home, all the critters in the household feel the need to come by and inspect me and my mat. If I’m in Mountain Pose, no problem. However, there were a few times where I was trying Crane, and a certain feline felt the need to headbutt me when I finally gained balance. It was all over after that.

They can get nosy and annoying, but I still love them.

Enjoy these videos of cats wanting to be part of the Yoga action 🙂

DVD Recommendation: Crunch Total Yoga

Instructor: Sara Ivanhoe

I originally bought this video in VHS format around 2002, and even though it’s been 8 years, I still like it (now own the DVD version). It’s great because it makes you feel stronger, more flexible, yet calm after the practice. As always, pay attention to your posture and form when performing the practice. I like it especially after running as it helps to stretch out my leg muscles and cool down in a safe way.

That being said though, there are a lot of poses that force you to support your body weight included in the practice, like Plank, Down Dog, Chair, and High Lunge.  Cooldown comes in the end with stretches and Final Relaxation pose.

All in all, it flows pretty well. Two thumbs up 🙂
