Oh, sweet Cyrus! What a dandy fellow. Written to be a happy pig who loves to meet people, he’s the epitome of an animal’s resilience. He may not be able to see, but he sure loves good company, and keeps himself spotless! We hope his new forever home has plenty of puddles so he can dirty up a bit. Of course, he should then have a lovely pond where he can rinse off, so he can wind down his day enjoying cuddle time on the porch with a glass of refreshing cucumber water (oh yeah, they love cucumbers!). If you have some puddles + ponds and you’re around Greensboro, please stop by the Guilford County Animal Shelter and say hello for us! See his full profile on Petfinder.com »

Series introduction: Many variations are found within the practice of yoga. Some practices are so similar you might find yourself thinking the only difference between them is just the name. The best way to find a style of yoga that ‘fits you’ is to go take classes. You’ll know if it’s ‘the one’ right away. However, this series is meant to help you start that process and perhaps spark an interest in a new yoga practice!
Power Yoga in a Nutshell: Power Yoga is a derivative of Ashtanga Yoga. In these classes, you’ll always find a series of standing postures and sitting postures. Postures in Power Yoga classes will almost always be linked with breath. The main difference between Power Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga is that Power Yoga is more ‘workout-focused.’ In fact, it was developed as a way to meet the demand in America for exercise.
Understanding Power Yoga: Most Power Yoga classes will have the room heated to anywhere from 100 to 115 degrees. There are variations within Power Yoga and your best bet to finding the ideal practice for you is to research any of the key Power Yoga people.
Is Power Yoga Best for You?: If you want a workout that will challenge you, make you sweat, offers variety and avoids much of the spiritual side of things, Power Yoga is for you.

1. She has nine dogs, hoping to adopt another very soon.
2. She’ll take a dinner party over a cocktail soiree any time.
3. She believes every mistake is a gold mine.
4. She’s been a vegan for 7ish years, with a goal of mastering the vegan chocolate chip cookie.
5. She lives for the moments when she can relax barefoot in a tee shirt and jeans.
6. She makes sorbets from her own home-grown berries.
7. She also has a donkey named Madonna and a tortoise named Socrates, and she’s currently working with the Farm Sanctuary to adopt more animals that deserve a loving home.
We usually provide a brief quip for our weekly adoptable pets, but this time we’ll let The Pixie Project from Portland, Oregon say it all:
“Greetings common-people of the world, this is Princess Roo of the Roses. I am 2 years old and quite special lady with delicate tastes and sensibilities. And if my servants fail to provide it’s TO THE DUNGEON! Oh, excuse my little outburst. Can you believe they almost made me dine with the cats in the communal cattery? I was quite shocked, it might as well be in a cafeteria; dont they know only 5 star restaurants are the place for me? So I demanded to be taken to the elite back office where my needs are met. I do believe I am quite loved and adored back there. As a reward for the care I receive I allow my servants to give me attention and I even offer affection back. But dont let that get out, if everyone knew how sweet I really am I should have to send them ALL TO THE STOCKS! Uhhum, pardon me, like the Queen of England I rule with an iron fist, but also like Her Majesty I provide love and loyalty to my people!”
