Yoga with Cats

 

A cat purring and arching its back already resembles a yoga master, so last week animal shelter Homeward Bound sent six adult cats to mingle with students at a yoga studio in Decatur, Illinois.


Homeward Bound, a no-kill pet shelter, recently teamed up with a yoga studio, Yoga at Connie’s, to host a special class featuring adoptable adult cats. Students were encouraged to practice their poses and interact with the cats, all in hopes of finding them, and others, a forever home.

The cats were allowed to wander among the students and join in on the activity for the duration of the class. They relaxed among the students, accepted belly rubs and showed off a few poses of their own, while some of the shyer cats watched from the side-lines.

As fun as the class was, it resulted in more than just a good time - from just that one class, participants raised more than $500 for the shelter! The shelter also aimed at bringing particular attention to adult cats, who are often overlooked for adoption in favour of little kittens.


We don’t know about you, but cat yoga is something we’d be very keen to try!
