Yogic Practices for All .... even bears.
 
OK its the silly season when journeymen journalists get an opportunity to present their masterpieces.

However when I saw this story in Today's Guardian I was most taken. In case one fails to realise that the underlining of a word represents a link here is my favourite picture

Just love that tail ...

The people of fur cohabiting within my anarcho-syndicalist inter-species co-operative are somewhat ambivalent, the cats being Marxist-Leninist dismiss most aspects of Yoga as reactionary bourgeois obscurationalism. The chinchilla who sadly has 'economist' leanings, whilst objecting the anthropomorphic distortions and exploitation of fellow working creatures, did express some interest in the techniques.

He suggested that positions like Virasana, Urdhva Dhanurasana or the Dhyana could be of use in achieving an individualist solution to just demands for " Fairer Shares ... Bigger portions ... Now !"

Is the 'enlightenment' of yoga open to non-humans ?

My cat has a special stretching sequence that she does before eating fish. Only yesterday, I realised that it is yoga!

Yes they do it when they wake up as well.We should all do it, Don Juan told Castaneda He should do it everytime he woke up, it releases trapped used energy from the body.

What about Bi-Polar bears Martin?:D KK

Only does it for fish, though, not for other food!

A Bi-polar Bear? [shock] --- that I would rather not meet: in either mood!

Meaning it has a home in both the arctic & antarctic, has both boar friends & sow friends, or just plain old highs & lows that get stuck in between gears for several weeks at a time?:D:D

Time for the why don't Polar Bears eat Penguins joke?

KK... looks like the bear got the worst end of the bargain out of that encounter.

This, understatement of the decade, from the guy's partner, who still has a gun. At this time, the bear is running off with the guy in his mouth...

"I was about 20 or 25 metres from the bear and it had Sebastian in its mouth, I was very worried I did not want to hit Sebastian as well," said Mr Fjeld.

"That would have been a really bad day for him."
My italics.

Thanks :)I would never have thought of that :D Unless someone was giving me a feed for ...

If yogic practice were a mistake for a bi-polar bear ... could it be a bit of a boo-boo cool: :cool: with shades from a meditating Basil Brush.
