Ever do yoga at home, with the help of a cat? Since I've been building my own yoga routines, Monday nights have become my yoga nights. It feels good to stretch out, and I'm using the yoga method I love the best. Steady, flowing yoga that moves into the next pose, and hits the muscles that need attention. The one drawback? I need my cheat sheet so I know which pose comes next. With DVDs, the cat sits on the couch, entranced by the yoga voice. Not so much with a free piece of paper. This cute little girl makes yoga a participatory activity.
Thankfully, she gives me my space and only goes after the cheat sheet. All my cheat sheets are crumpled, and I have to put them in a big envelope to protect them. She doesn't participate with me, just runs interference so I can't see what I'm supposed to do next. One of my parents' cats makes it a full participatory activity, and must be involved at every second.
It doesn't matter if the pose is a standing pose, twisting pose, downward dog, on the floor, he's there and must assist.
