Ursus maritimus, Cape Churchill, Wapusk National Park in Manitoba, Canada
After making us laugh with his invigorating and entertaining display of yoga mixed with gymnastics playing in deep snow, it was sad to see him end his “practice” and prepare for Savasana, relaxation pose. But instead of making me sad, he took my breath away by emerging from the shadows of the willows to find a soft blanket of snow, embraced by a spotlight of brilliant sun, where he laid down his head, warmed my heart and touched my soul.
This bear and his other poses can be seen in the calendar Yoga Bear where this one is December’s image.
