One of the most popular tabloids in England stated that there’s a new practise called “Lemoga”, which is doing yoga with lemurs and there is a hotel in England that allows you to do so. The hotel is located in Keswick.

They’re friendly lemurs that live on the surroundings of the hotel and they’re good company for practising yoga.

The yoga classes include walking alpacas around the hotel grounds as part of a wellness program. This program also includes interacting with meerkats and some other sessions with the staff from the zoo.

The hotel staff claims that this can play a great part of our well being, as doing yoga with animals, specially lemurs can have a lot of benefits for reducing stress and even blood pressure.

It will be very exciting if this kind of practice: “Lemoga” could more accessible in other areas, as these animals are incredibly cute and could mean a big wellness change in many people’s lives.

These friendly animals from Madagascar will be able to bring you peace of mind and at the same time helping you work out due to their peaceful nature. They are used to being surrounded in big groups and this is why you will feel comfortable being around them. They are also beautiful animals, being the most famous kind of lemur the one called “Lemur catta” which is the one with the ring-tail, very popular among the different communities and even cartoons.

The lemurs are mainly adapted to the night-light and this is why they are less active during the day, which may represent┬áthe perfect combination of relaxation when interacting with humans. Also their kindly and friendly manners make them the perfect companion for this kind of relaxing activity for humans. Unlike monkeys, lemurs are better to be around as they are more pacific in the sense of they won’t get as agitated as monkeys, and this is one of the reasons why lemurs are one of the best options when it comes to interacting with animals.

5 Interesting facts about Lemurs

1. Stink dispute

Exotic is not enough! In addition to their eccentricities in terms of appearance, lemurs still have strange habits. The ring-tailed lemur, for example, is known for its stinkiest disputes. And this is how these animals decide who is stronger or fight over territory and food, for example. But only males manifest in this way.

2. Girl power

Perhaps because males are too busy releasing unpleasant odors, lemur societies are usually ruled by females. This is evidenced in normal scenes in an environment with lemurs when, for example, males do not start eating while females do not finish their meal.

3. Cleverness rules

A recent study this year showed that the smarter a lemur is, the more admired it becomes by peers.

If, for example, they manage to learn a new task or skill, they receive thought-provoking behavior from others. Touching, sitting next to or grooming others are some ways to show respect and admiration among primates that are aimed at the smartest lemurs.

4. High I.Q.

Identify sizes, memorize lists of images and the sequence in which they are arranged, and even understand basic math. All of this is within the lemurs’ list of capabilities, according to some experiments that evaluated their cognitive abilities in 2013.

Humans were slow to place lemurs among primates worthy of further study, but now that they are doing so, they have realized that they have a sophisticated communication potential that includes audible warnings and facial expressions.

These cuties never get to be 1 meter tall. Typically, they measure around 75 centimeters! And there is one of them with an incredible 6 cm tall: the pygmy mouse lemur!
