    32 Reasons Cats Are Born Yoga Masters

    1. They are naturally limber and bendy.

    2. They’re great inhalers and exhalers (minus the fishy kitty breathe).

    3. They begin practicing their poses at a young age. This little guy is moving into a beautiful half shoulder stand.

    4. They make a forward fold look easy as hell.
