Yoga with Furry Friends {Funny Video}

Posted by:

Admittedly, there are certain risks on the days that we decide to do a home practice instead of making the trip into the studio. A spouse or roommate may distract us; we may distract ourselves! Who hasn’t come home with the intention to practice, only to end up checking emails, making a grocery list, finishing laundry, or just plain taking a nap instead?!


Or, perhaps you’ve had this more amusing distraction: your cat or dog believes that the minute you unroll your yoga mat, you’re extending an invitation to them to play.

Our 2′ x 6″ mat masquerades as a blanket, a cat bed, and a playground for our pups.


It can be fun or it can be a nuisance to have them nearby, depending on the mood you’re in. 


But if we can learn one thing from home yoga with furry friends, it’s this— that a little bit of joy and playfulness can be a good thing, and perhaps we we can model it in our own asana practice.



I hope you enjoy a good laugh!
