Yoga Kitty

My Sophie loves it when I do yoga, and gets super happy when I get out my mat. She runs over to me and hovers close, anticipating a stretch on my mat and then a snooze on me while I stretch on my back at the start and end of my practice. In her desire to be near while I move through my asanas (poses), she often plants herself in the middle of my mat so that I have to maneuver around her. On this day I decided to document it, very unyoga-like. :P I love my kitty!

In the first two, I have just unrolled my mat and am standing on it. I love the look in her eyes. :) How could anyone resist?

In this next group, I have stretched out on my mat for a warmup, and Sophie, as usual, immediately climbs onto my chest and relaxes. I usually linger here for her... **Please ignore the deodorant ring on my tank. lol**

I've displaced Sophie and started to move here. She doesn't make it easy.


Sivasana- rest time. We've done a lot of work.

Ohhhh Sophie you're soo sweet! I love this post! This is sooo cute. My doggies love to sleep on my bed, if my hubby doesn't come home.. they will move right in on his spot without delay. :)

Sophie looks like a short-haired twin of my baby, Geisha. Geisha loves to wind between my legs and hands and bite my hair and lick my face while I am in downward dog LoL. Yes, I am talking about a cat, by the way.
