Bear at Ahtari Zoo practises yoga

By | January 13, 2018

The images of a brown female bear doing yoga postures surprise a lot of visitors to Ahtari Zoo in Finland. The bear named Santra has the habit of practising various postures in the early morning. Meta Penca, a 29-year-old web programmer from Slovenia, managed to capture images of this yoga bear during her visit to Ahtari Zoo. Through the pictures, Santra performs seven postures such as lifting the right or left leg, holding both big feet, and stretching her legs in a V position. It is thought that the bear’s yoga stretching routine is not only to the delight of visitors but also to keep herself sane. Within a 15-minute performance, Santra shows off her flexibility and balance in yoga.
