There’s yoga with hula hoops, yoga on horseback, and now…yoga with whales.
According to Racked.com, the Vancouver Aquarium recently started offering “Yoga with the Beluga Whales,” in collaboration with Lululemon, where focusing your drishti may be more difficult than usual, since the point you choose to focus on may swim away at any moment.
Animal rights activist yogis were angered by the program and protested outside with signs that read “Whale jail=yoga fail.”
In New York, yogis in years past have gotten around the whales-in-captivity issue by practicing underneath a whale skeleton at the Museum of Modern Art. —Lisa Elaine Held
