The world’s largest aquarium contains 8 million gallons of water and is home to more than 80,000 animals.
In an attempt to keep visitors coming in despite the incredibly tough economic climate the aquarium has combined two remarkable things; beluga whales and yoga.
Weekly yoga sessions are now held in front of large aquarium windows through which the graceful, smooth and apparently slow-moving whales can be seen. Todd DeLaune, who leads some of the yoga classes at the aquarium, told CNN that he believes the belugas react to the practice sessions too.

What do you think of aquariums? Are they a force for good, for bad or does it depend on the aquarium?
Would you pay a little bit extra in order to practise your yoga in front of some smiling beluga whales?
