Yoga Daisy!

Today, I am going to show you what I know about Yoga! Yoga is a very good exercise to do so that you stay limber and strong. It is very fun, too. This pose helps keep my spine bendy.
You can use accessories to make your Yoga more fun. These are called blocks. You can stand on them with your front paws, just like this. It is not a very hard exercise.
Or, you can just use them to play funny games with.
Sometimes, I also like to use a strap. It helps keep your paws strong!
Here I am playing working more with the strap. You should also try doing your routine on a sticky mat. You can really dig your clawrs in good!
Finally, you should have a soft towel to rest your head on when you are tired. Namaste!
Ps: You do not have to do Downward Dog if you do not want to.

99 Notes for Daisy:

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Thank you for this wonderful Yoga overview! The strap does look like fun. However, we do not know what a Downward Dog is, but we're pretty sure we don't want to be a dog.

michico*Adan said...

Oah Wowww~~~ Daisy,
I haven't plan to do Yoga~!!
But you are doing great~!
I think I will consider doing that after I read about your overview~!
To keep my health!!

I especially love you rest on the towel, it's very cute!

Eric and Flynn said...

Those are very instructive exercises, we are going to practise them now.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Isis said...

Oh I thought that yoga move was called "Down with Dogs!" ;) You're a great yoga teacher Daisy I'm sure I have now learned lots! :)

The Whiskers & Purrs Gang said...

Dearest Daisy,
So that's how you keep your girlish figure! Looks like fun...especially since it looks like you git to lay down on the floor...can you maybe take a nap or somethin' while you're doin' it?

Very truly yours,
The Whiskers and Purrs Gang

Now we know how u keep ur slim figure, Daisy! How often do u practice yoga??
:whisper: the belly can be a wee difficult to get rid off, just like mom's belly...

Tracey and Huffle said...

I can do the downward dog because in some place, I am an honorary husky. It's okay, I'm still really a cat.

Will you be putting out your own yoga DVD?

Spooky said...

I don't have any yoga accessories, but I think I do some of the yoga positions anyway. I'm very good at it...except when I fall off my footstool.

Alasandra said...

Wow, we didn't know cats could do yoga. We shall have to give it a try. Mom does Power Yoga with Bryan Kest. She does not like Down Dog at all but she loves Tree Pose, except when we try to climb up her while she is doing it.

Nice moves Daisy. ~Socks

Poppy Q said...

You are a great yoga teacher Miss D, thanks for all the great tips.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Wow Daisy, you are always teaching us new things! You are the Yoga Master!!! Thank you so much. We are off to practice!

Babs (Beetle) said...

That is a very good lesson daisy. You are a good teacher. I doubt I could get Livvie to join in though.

Purrs, Sukie x

Karen said...

My favorite part is the end, where you get to lay there like a lump to 'meditate' and 'cool down'...for me it's more like 'nap time'.

wildcatsthree said...

Lucky you Daisy - you're done with your exercises for the day. That reminds me that I need to get up from the computer and go do mine.

Mickey said...

u are a yoga yogi... (although technically i think yogis are male but I like the alliteration)

NanjoDogz said...

Thank you for the yoga lesson, Daisy, you are a great yoga instructor.

Snuzzy said...

You are clearly in a sound place mentally since you're such a good yoga-er. And the Downward Dog can be replaced with the Upward Cat the next time you yogize. It's much better for your paws.

zevo hussein calamari said...

Thank you for the most excellent yoga lesson! We love to do yoga with our pet human too.

sourpuss said...

That was great, Daisy! You are so knowledgeable! I took Yoga for a few years and that's exactly what it looked like! :)

You mentioned Downward Dog but I'm surprised you didn't show us the cat position!

The Fitness Diva said...

Oh, EXCELLENT, Daisy! Bravo, bravo!

And your pose postures are perfect!
Yes, yoga is great for cats, and will help to keep you limber and strong.
You should invite some of your other cat friends over and have a class!
Don't forget the cat pose! It's my favorite! ;)

HotMBC said...

I likes the soft towel part best. hehehe

Angus Mhor said...

My mom tried Downward Dog, once, and got stuck! But I'm all about restin' on the towel, I'm just sayin'.

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

That looks great! Momma used to do yoga, now she is looking for a think for our Wii that will get her started again! We will have to try it out! ~Queen Snickers

The Meezers said...

great yoga lesson. Sammy likes to do upward twisty cat

Cheysuli and gemini said...

This is the specist nature of yoga. We have one pose called cat that is only done with cow.

However there is both downward dog and upward dog--

How did they get two poses all their own?!

Aoise said...

Great Yoga lessun but I dont like the sound of Downward Dog. I'll just do the bit where I rest my hed on the towel. Is that enuf to keep me suppel and helfy ?

Lorianna said...

Good job Daisy! I used to do Yoga quite a bit. I hope to get back to it when I get my wrists and knees under control strength wise. My favorite is Child's Pose. :) The Cat is a great spinal stretch. Too bad humans don't look as cool doing it as kitties! I will have to look into those nifty blocks your Mommie has. Those might really help me a lot.
Have a really great day!
Love and Hugs,
Lorianna

Rosehaven Cottage said...

I like how you're taking a "breather" snuggled up in the towel. Thank goodness you don't have to do Downward Dog! It would be so un-catlike!

Excellent yoga class Daisy! I can do the towel move, lol!

Actually by the time I was three-quarters through the drawing last night I was steaming mad because my graphics programme lost the eyes and various other bits and I had to do them again, grrrrr!!! :) xxx

JD at I Do Things said...

Daisy, so do you mean to tell me that all this time my cats have been digging their clawrs into the carpet, they have been doing yoga???

Titus said...

Daisy, I like your picture on the blocks. It's super cute.
Yoga is pretty fun. I'm partial to downward dawg myself. I do it every day. There's one more move I like to do: secretly chew a hole in your mom's mat and then when she takes it to class and unrolls it everyone can be amazed at your talent. It's super fun.

Kimo & Sabi said...

WOWY - you are in good shape! Namaste!

dennis said...

Dennis is not doing downward dog! But the cat stretches are fine!

Sunny's Mommy said...

I like the way you do yoga, Daisy! That looks like so much fun. I'm so glad to hear you don't think we have to do downward dog :-p

I forget who I saw that tried it yesterday (my brain is all nipped out), but they got to eat bananna bread. we wondered if Pixie likes bananna bread.

Randi said...

I can teach them my flipper paw paw pose & you can teach them how to stretch real good!

Love & Licks,

This is a very interesting lesson on yoga Daisy. I do not think we have anything like that in our house.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, my. These exercises look so strenuous, we need to go take a collective nap.

Hehehe. We kitties can nap but the pups have to go take Jan for her evening walk.

Daisy, you are to be commended for your exercise routine. You deserve an extra temptation but you don't want to undo all that hard work with extra calories. Or do you?

The Devil Dog said...

Thanks for the lesson, Daisy. What is downward dog?

Roxy

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Wally, Ernie & Zoey

SophieKitty said...

No wonder why you are such a happy kitty. It's the yoga. I really like the sticky mat...I love to dig my clawrs in stuff.

Lily. Luci and Leelu said...

Hi Daisy, thanks for the instructions. We'll be practicing with our mama everyday now! It will be so fun and we'll be in good shape too. Except for Bubba, because he's so lazy.

Sweet Praline said...

Hey Daisy. Thanks for the yoga lesson. Mom says her massage therapist tells her she needs to practice yoga to learn to relax.

Sorry we haven't visited the past couple of days. Mom's laptop crashed and she is still feeling a little yechy!

Namaste Daisy! Yoga is an excellent exercise, for the body, mind and soul. No wonder you are so fit and well balanced. I learned a bit of Yoga with you today. I'll try and start soon. TGIF! Meow!

Laura said...

My cats were into extreme exercise. They would jump from the deck to the stone patio a whole floor of the house below. I think cats were the real inventors of that French thing where they jump off buildings and act like human pinballs.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Daisy, you are doing an excellent job with those yoga poses!

Bookmakers said...

Oh the yoga cat!!!! all the pic is nice.
