Maintain Focus — No Matter What

When you're doing yoga, it's really important to be aware of your body, and to be conscious of your movements. Bringing your attention inward is a big part of the yoga practice. If your mind is wandering, or something distracts you, you could get careless with your actions, and end up getting injured.

Check out this yogi's response to a furry, purring distraction...

Now that you are inspired and focused, try this side angle pose.

Ha, my cat sometimes comes up to me when I'm doing pushups and tries to get under my chest. He thinks it's a game or something...he moves out of my way just as I'm about to get all the way down. Cute video!

Glad to see it's not just my cat that does that!

Lol, my cat tries to do yoga with me too sometimes! That yogi had the concentration of a gorilla though; it was so cool!

How sweet, ha! I don't think I would have been able to maintain my focus. Good on him for not losing his pose!

That is so funny. My cat LOVES to jump on my back when I am gardening. The claws, they kinda bother me. I am not sure I would be able to maiintain my composure like this guy!
