And if you maybe want to your own rabbit yoga class, all yogi bunnies, plus yoga mats and clothes are available on the website here: Maileg yoga bunnies and clothes. 

Little Rabbit has spotted a poster…”Stretch your body and ears”, “Relaxation techniques” Hmm, she thinks a new yoga class. this sounds good and books herself a place on the class.

She also assures the bunnies that they will not be practicing Cat Posture, as this has been known to send all but the most experienced yogi bunnies into a bit of a panic!

“Draw up your pelvic floor and engage your abdominal muscles, bunnies!”
