You know what’s awesome about dogs?

Dogs have astounding personalities. They are way smarter then we give them credit for. They are always in the mood for hugs.

And of course, the best part-

They are perpetually grateful.

For. Every. Little. Thing.

And that’s a big part of what yoga is trying to teach us – to be grateful for our bodies and minds and breaths and practices and lives.

Here’s a list of things to be grateful for!

1. Be grateful for hugs.

MOMMY!
MOMMY!

Even when the cat is eating it.

3. Be grateful for naps in the sun.
