Cat is the very embodiment of yoga.
Blissfully relaxed and totally immersed in the present,
No regrets about the past or planning of the future whatsoever.
Similarly to the way asanas should be practiced– cats get into any situation with ease, dwell in elegance and leave gracefully.
Their body is light, flexible and soft,
An elastic spine makes them somehow destined for hatha yoga.
Mysterious, and possessing some special connection with the Sublime,
they used to be cult animals in ancient Egypt.
Hatha yoga pradipika teaches us to keep our practice a secret and so cats always have their feline mysteries keeping themselves to themselves.
They can see in near darkness.
Cat's meow meow or purring voice is pleasant to the ear and brings comfort.
No matter what a cat will say - it will make people jubilant!
Their words contribute to general happiness.
Their presence is enough.
Their presence evokes warmth and peace.
They’re loving and dedicated healers by being capable of consciously taking their owner’s sickness upon themselves.
Loners by nature, cats can be very loyal and generous – will happily share a bird or mouse they've just caught.
Well-known for their cleanliness and dignity.
Wise and rather aloof – one has to earn their friendship.
Being a cosmopolitan species they’re found across much of the world.
No borders whatsoever but those of the mind.
