Mom signed me up for yoga lessons at the zoo.

The instructor told our class that yoga means "union of the mind and the heart" and that this ancient philosophy comes from India.

The instructor said the word philosophy means "love of knowledge."

During our lessons I learned new games, how to breathe better, and how to relax, and we tried some meditation exercises.

What I enjoyed most were the asanas, the many different body positions that you must try to hold.

I thought it would be strange to practice yoga at the zoo ...

But that was before I realized so many yoga poses resemble the animals there!

After my lessons, I go home where my cat, Nino, waits for me. He's a master of relaxation, so I practice my yoga with him and teach him the poses I learned at the zoo.

First is the king of the beasts: the LION! I sit on my heels, with my hands on the ground and my fingers pointing toward me.

I close my eyes and take a deep breath. I open my mouth wide and roar loudly! Then I stick out my tongue.
