Capital Humane Society offers Cat Yoga
If you like cats and yoga, the Capital Humane Society has the perfect class for you. The first ever cat yoga is a class located at the Pieloch Pet Adoption Center.
Vickie Sundquist has been with the shelter for 8 years and thought an idea like this will help with adoption.
"I am very passionate about homeless animals trying to find them new homes," said Sundquist.
A certified yoga instructor teaches the class while a couple of cats are wandering free around the room.
If you find a cat you like, the good news is all of the cats are ready to be adopted and in need of a new home.
Regina signed up for the class after seeing the event on Facebook. She was happy to have been able to support the Capital Humane Society as she went through the adoption process years ago with her cat.
"Coming into it, I didn’t know if I would be able to focus on the meditative parts of yoga. I was pretty aware of where the cats were and hoping they would come. It was so much fun, so relaxing," said Regina Flowers.
Another participant says this is a great idea for people looking to adopt.
"With being able to interact with them, people see them and get attached and I think it will help spike up the adoption," said Emily Mills.
The class fits 30 people. There are four more Monday’s left of the class.
It is $15 a session which goes toward the shelter. You can pre–register and secure a spot by calling (402) 441-4488.
