{ downward facing CAT pose } yogic love for the felines!

- - Inspiration

Yesterday I read (and tweeted) about the very first yoga studio in the U.S. to offer ashtanga and doga. Doga, you ask? Doga = dogs + yoga. Yoga for doggies! This is pretty cool when you think about how very important our animal friends are to us and how much love they bring to our lives. Bonding with your best friend through yoga sounds like lots of fun. My next thought was “Hey, what about the kitties?!” Dogs get all the credit — they even have a pose named after them! It’s time for a shout-out to all the feline yogis. They have much to teach us…

Foot Behind the Head Pose // Eka Pada Sirsasana:

I believe one has truly, truly reached the pinnacle of living yoga when one can chow down while effortlessly slipping into Eka Pada Sirsasana. You, sir, are the epitome of yoginess.
