Review: This came together quickly and we really enjoyed the yoga whimsies. Note: it's hard to tell when pieces are wrong-side up... investigate before thinking you've lost a piece!

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.
