The Antarctic Fur Seal (Arctocephalus gazelle) is one of seven seals in the genus Arctocephalus. Around 95% of the world population breeds at South Georgia. It is named for the German naval vessel the SMS Gazelle which collected the first specimen from Kerguelen Island. The species is also known as the Kerguelen Fur Seal. Antarctic Fur seals are found mainly on the sub-antarctic islands of South Georgia, South Shetland, South Orkney, and South Sandwich, though today they are regularly seen farther and farther south on the Antarctic Peninsula.
Yoga is an Indian spiritual path aimed at achieving the union with the Supreme Consciousness. Some yogas go beyond it and aim at the spiritual transformation of the entire human nature and obtaining immortality even for the physical body. A practitioner of Yoga is called a Yogi (male) or Yogini (female). Outside India, yoga is mostly associated with the practice of asanas (postures) of Hatha Yoga or as a form of exercise.
