Forward Bend

Kelly demonstrates a tortie forward bend.

Kelly’s hatha yoga bath turns into a sun-warmed meditation session as she pauses in mid-belly-bath to enjoy a moment of nourishing sun in perfect stillness.

But when I practice yoga, she is all about instructing me, strolling around in upward and downward cat and talking to me. I don’t get a moment of peace.

Wonder where all the scratches came from on this cabinet top? Obviously a favorite place, just perfect for an old salvaged cabinet meant to take a beating.


Unless I have linked the photo to something else, which is rare with daily photos, you can click the photo to see a larger version. I save them at 1000 pixels maximum dimension, and at that size the photos are nearly twice the dimension and you can see more detail in many of the photos I post. Please remember if you download or share, my name and the link back to the original photo should always appear with it.

From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.

  • I have a Rodney Yee Yoga Tape –about 20 minutes long…as soon as they hear the chime, Coupurr and Fatty get ready…By the time I’m on the floor one starts to kiss my nose, the other Coupurro will spoon :0 I never get through a session. with their interruptions, but I think it makes me feel even better:)

    • That’s one of the things I’ve always loved about yoga at home–I’m down on their level. My little feral girl Moses who could not jump or climb was so excited when I did yoga she laid in the middle of my mat and purred, and she was never that brave.
