Although the weather will soon be changing, people will still be doing their Yoga inside as opposed to in the great outdoors. You may have seen sessions offered to dog, many of which are entitled Doga sessions, but never fear, cats seem to get into the groove of doing Yoga with you, too.
Carrie Boyko, author of All Things Dog Blog, has developed a yoga regimine for her canines but there are others out there that include their felines in this fun and relaxing form or exercise, too. In fact, there are many cat Yoga videos on Youtube. Although many of the animals don’t realize that they are actually exercising, they do know that they are interacting with their pet parents while they are busy doing something good for themselves.
The website, YogaKitty, had one goal in mind when it was derived. The author wanted to present a practical, step-by-step guide for human beings and their feline companions to activate their fullest potential; to dwell in the ecstasy of physical, mental and spiritual life together.
The videos on the website are absolutely free for its users. If you have any questions about the viability of the website, don’t be wary, for the website has won various awards, including:
· ‘Purrfect Site’ from www.i-love-cats.com
· The circle of healing purrs
· Heavenly Cat Site Award
There are several testimonials that cats and their parents have included on the website, too.
The benefits for the kitty are numerous, too. They include:
· Spiritual Awakenings
· Fewer Hairballs
· Improved Sexual Function (*Warning: Does apply to both species!)
The benefits you will get include:
· Improves posture and balance
· Strengthens and stretches the spine and neck
· Stretches the hips, abdomen and back
· Increases coordination
· Massages and stimulates organs in the belly, like the kidneys and adrenal glands
· Creates emotional balance
· Relieves stress and calms the mind
Like the website http://life.gaiam.com/article/benefits-yoga states, ‘Yoga is for everyone.’ There are Yoga studios you can attend, but to get the benefits with your furry feline, you may really want to do the exercises at home.
Yoga with your kitty can help you increase your overall health and wellness as well as strengthen your core and build muscle. Although kitties may not be concerned with these types of things, the time that they spend with you will help them grow emotionally and will increase their overall health as well.
Even though the outdoor season of Yoga is nearly over, just think about the poses you and your feline can do on the mat in front of a roaring fire. The possibilities are endless. Good health be with you both!
