Do you know what inspired the Yogis to come up with many asanas? It was nature, the early yogis were influenced by what was around them. Read - Thread on Yoga!
#Dog - Downward Facing Dog aka Adho Mukha Svanasana. Its a popular pose which is also a part of the Surya Namaskar. This helps to increase flexibility and release tension. If you have dogs around, you would have noticed that dogs stretch their body in this pose.

#Cow Pose aka Bitilasana & #Cat Pose aka Marjariasana. Usually these two are done together. It helps in spine flexibility. The breathing exercise attached with this helps in relaxation. This is common posture in which the cow stands and cat stretches.

Inspired by the #LockdownBestiary, I have created my own abecedary. (For previous entries search Twitter: #MoneyAtoZ)

a=ancient economy
b=bitcoin
c=cowry shells

d is for….[dogs?] 1/x
2) d is for penny, of course!

Before it was finally decimalised in 1971 (proposals had been repeated since 1850s), British money of account consisted of pounds, shillings, pence--abbreviated £ s d: 12d to the shilling, 20s to the £. After 15/2/1971, 6d=2.5 [decimal] pence! Image
3) £ s d also the abbreviation for accounting units most widely used in France before 1789: livres (lit. “pounds”) tournois, sous, deniers (12d=1s; 20s=1£). N.B. in parts of the Kingdom, accounts were kept in Hainaut or Lorraine livres. No livre or denier coin existed, however.

It’s #Croctober, so that means I’ll be featuring croc-relatives using the hashtag #AtoZcrocs. Follow along this month for a deep dive into how weird croc #evolution really got.
A is for Anatosuchus, a notosuchian from the Cretaceous of Niger. It’s name means “duck-crocodile,” for it’s oddly flared snout. #Croctober #AtoZcrocs #fossils

📸 Sereno and Larsson, 2009: doc.rero.ch/record/200234/… skeleton of Anatosuchus, flared snout to the left, body out to the right, missing most of its tailArtist's reconstruction of Anatosuchus in an upright posture, duck-like snout gaping to show off flared shape
Anatosuchus’ upright limb posture and funky snout might have helped it wade in the shallows and root around for small prey. #Croctober #AtoZcrocs #fossils

And now I present: a thread based on my love of #science, #scicomm, and #animals, and the fact that I'm a huge #nerd:
1/?
The other day at the library, I got this book by Ann Tompert for my 2yo (2/?): amazon.com/Just-Little-Bi…
The premise: an elephant and a mouse want to ride a see-saw. #Physics has other ideas, so some other animals come to help. (3/?)
