This a 310 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle featuring Paul Bond's "The Yogi." Designed by Jef Bambas, he really stretched for perfection with a non-straight edge, yoga and bear themed whimsies, and flora connectors. If a friend asks you to go out for the evening just reply to them with "Namaste-in and do my new Yogi puzzle."
Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood. Packaged in our standard unfinished pine wood box. Made in USA (specifically, in Fremont, California).

Review: What's not to like with this puzzle? Raccoons and rabbits, birds and bears, a perfectly circular zen piece, and even a surprise or two! Perhaps the sky is too distinguishable from the ground, and the dandelioned ground from the bear, but then again, the effect of this puzzling is remarkably soothing, as it should be.
Review: This puzzle gets a fun groove from a wavy grid. Lotus and bear tail connectors frame animals and yoga related whimsies. The difficulty is to distinguish the different browns (fur of the bear versus brownish grass), dandelions are a good clue. The balancing act of the bear is witnessed by standstill cute animals, whereas the whimsies are more dynamic. This contrast reflect beautifully the flow of yoga: keep a pose or being in motion. And what's not to love about the different asanas depicted by a bear? You do not need to practice yoga to enjoy the playfulness of this puzzle. It also resonates with our modern conundrum of balancing out a career and a family life, or a passion with a nine to five job... What is your pile of rocks? What is your little bird? It's a lovely puzzle to reflect on these questions, or just to take a big healing breath.

Review: What is not to love about this puzzle - bear yoga in a calm pastoral environment. The themed whimsies are adorable and even the connectors follow the flow. It is the kind of puzzle you can do in a few hours with friends, kids, or solo. So relaxing.

Review: This was my first artifact puzzle and I completed it in one afternoon. I loved the challenge! Once I pieced a few of the animals together, I had my bearings and kept going. As another reviewer said, it’s deceiving to try to Start with the edge, so I didn’t. I’ll be ordering more!

Review: Enjoyed doing this puzzle with my partner though shapes were not my favorite. I’ve done over a dozen though so I’m just getting picky. Whimsies were cute. I especially like that i am able to see the original painting in the public area of the Stanford children’s hospital. Beautiful image and serene to work on.
