Just when we thought that yoga reached its peak with people inventing dog yoga, beer yoga, laughing yoga, rage yoga, wine yoga, sex yoga and etc, someone got even more creative and came up with something even more adorable and interesting.
I present you… LEMOGA. Or in other words Lemur yoga.
Yep, that’s right.
Beer yoga, dog yoga, rage yoga, move over because the number one place on the list goes to this newest twist on the practice.
We had no idea that we needed this, but as it turns out, I am pretty sure we do!
This new different kind of yoga class is introduced by a hotel in the English countryside and it is offered as a relaxation activity while you enjoy your lovely stay there. According to them, petting these adorable, furry creatures helps people find their Zen much more easily and feel one with nature.
The place is called Armathwaite Hall, and it is located near Keswick in the Lake District. They offer many outdoor classes that involve meeting the wildlife at the Lake District wildlife park, such as meeting a meerkat, going on a bike ride, canoeing, alpaca walking and so on.
Their goal is to encourage people to spend more time in nature and reconnect with their roots while also raising awareness about the protection of the lemurs in the wilderness.
But one of their most interesting experiences is definitely Lemoga. I mean who could resist such cuteness? I for one would do anything to visit this place!
“You need to be not afraid that an animal might come to sit on you. What we’re looking for is people who are wanting to be at one with nature and be at one with wildlife,” added the manager.
The funny thing is, this activity has been originally inspired by the animals, themselves. Since the lemurs unknowingly do some of the yoga poses in their everyday lives and usually sit in the lotus pose most of the time, the zookeepers and the managers decided that it would be a good idea to offer people to practice yoga alongside these adorable creatures.
“When you watch lemurs, they do some form of the poses naturally — that typical pose warming their bellies in the sunshine. It seemed to be a really good combination to encourage people to have a go and spend time with a lemur,” said Richard Robinson, manager of the hotel’s adjoining wildlife park.
So, what do you think?
Are you feeling stressed? If so, don’t hesitate to book your stay and visit this place. I am sure you will have the best time of your life!
