Shelter Cats Doing Yoga Should Be A Part Of Every Studio

By Stephen Messenger

It's (obviously) no secret that the company of cats is good for the soul — and that practicing yoga is, too.

Homeward Bound, a no-kill pet shelter in Illinois, recently teamed up with local studio Yoga at Connie's to host a special class featuring adoptable adult cats. Students were encouraged to practice their poses and mingle freely with the felines, all in the hopes of finding these pets the forever homes they deserve.

We spoke to Connie Pease about the experiment, and the results were so amazing that we can only hope other studios have been taking note.
