My cat is better at yoga and breathing than me. After some garden exploration, she sits down on the couch, stretches her back and slips into zen mode.
Stretching chanting, breathing, exercise, gongs are all about achieving an animal state. That animal state is the same state your cat or dog produces in two seconds while sitting on the couch.
Don’t confuse the animal state with spiritual development. Work on the latter separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom.
