Twister Thursday

As we have discussed before in this blog, Yoga was invented in India by a rabbit. It is still practiced by rabbits, but not in a class setting, rather is it integrated throughout the buns daily activities. Here, Amelia demonstrates a simple seated twisted pose. You have most likely seen your rabbit do same. Twists help maintain a supple spine and gently massage the intestines. Although humans can by no means achieve the level of cuteness that a rabbit can, we can, like our bunny teachers, integrate gentle twists and stretches into daily life.

Lucky and Winston are awful good at joint moves like this. I can't say it particularly helps there disposition, but they sure stay nimble!

Mickey is surprisingly flexible for being the pudgy furball that he is. He has been doing a lot of fling-training with the jingleball lately, though--I'm guessing that's to work out any kinks in his back and neck.

Indeed, the buns look much cuter in this pose than I do.

Amelia needs to teach Weasley a thing or two about this. He usually rolls over when he trys!
