“We’ve seen cat yoga in some other cities and thought it would be such a fun thing to bring to Memphis,” said Alexis Pugh, administrator of MAS. “We love that our sponsors, Crosstown Arts and Co-Motion Studio, are just as excited as we are to give our feline friends a chance to find forever homes.”

The classes are free to attend to those who plan to adopt a cat. Those who aren’t able to adopt a cat are asked to make a pay-what-you-can donation to Memphis Animal Services. Participants are asked to bring their own yoga mats. All cat adoptions at the Yoga with Cats event will be $35 cash-only (nearly half off the regular adoption fee) and will include spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, FIV/FeLV test, customized ID tag (to be picked up at the shelter), collar, and a goodie bag from Hollywood Feed.

Memphis Animal Services will have approximately 10 adoptable cats at the Crosstown Arts Gallery from 10am-2pm. Adriene Holland, co-owner of Co-Motion Studio, will teach two yoga classes at 11 a.m. and noon during which cats will be free-roaming and interacting with the yogis.
