What do cats and yogis have in common? They both love to stretch! And now they can stretch together: Introducing Edmonton’s first Cat Yoga Class. This new phenomenon of gathering friends and felines together for yoga was inspired by the Stretch Vancouver studio where eight kitties pawed and purred their way around the studio while participants did their poses and stances back on September, 20th 2015.
Don’t know much about Hatha yoga? No problem! This beginner course taught by the amazing Char Bergenstrom, combines a focus of breathing, mindfulness, and physical movements. Participating in yoga has been known to help increase energy levels and muscle tone, as well as aid in better sleep and relief from muscle pain and stiffness.
Hatha Yoga classes are designed for the beginner with none to some prior yoga experience. In the class, you will learn the foundational postures to create more flexibility and comfort in the body. Postures will be broken down to show proper alignment, and proper breathing and core control will be practiced.
This course is not only healthy and fun, it also helps to socialize and enrich the lives of the shelter cats, as well as, encourages adoption by showing the cats awesome personalities by interacting with them.
