The Cat Pose Goes Viral

Humane Society of Huron Valley Communications Director Wendy Walsh says, “Tiny Lions Cat Café started in 2016 to provide a place for the community to come together and enjoy the benefits of yoga practice, as well as interact with the adorable adoptable cats that live there. In the month of January, we’ll be running a special on Yoga with Cats at just $8/class (normally $10)."

Danne Dzenawagis, RYT-200, has been teaching yoga at Tiny Lions since 2018 and is the regular instructor for Thursday evening classes. In addition to the health benefits of interacting with animals and yoga, this class provides a great way to give back by supporting homeless animals in their community and provides numerous health benefits such as reduced stress, anxiety, a sense of community and the joy of giving back.

Yoga with cats is special because there’s the added element of laughter in the class. Inevitably, the cats do something funny mid-class and then everyone is laughing and smiling while they’re stretching and breathing deeply. For those that love yoga and love cats, it’s really a fun class.
