Manage episode 281335082 series 2462842
In this week's show we answer three questions from Goldie, Tasso and Sophia with help from special guest expert Zephyr Wildman.
Zephyr is a wonderful yoga teacher who teaches in London as well as on retreats around the world and knows all about yoga.
We find out how yoga helps us with focus, memory and resilience and how practicing can help us feel more peaceful. We discover the history of yoga – how it began in Northern India, how priests started it and when it came over to the west. Also it’s really fun to make yoga shapes with our bodies!
We talk about the fastest dog in the world, the Greyhound as well as some of the slowest and the reasons why they run fast or slowly and how all dogs love a good walk and run each day.
We find out how rabbits bounce as well as the Grand Nationals for rabbits held in Norway and other countries.
