Originating in the United States, the practice of Cat Yoga unfolds much like a typical yoga session. The only difference is the presence of small fur balls wandering between the mats throughout the session. But why cats? Quite simply, they are true yoga masters. They embody flexibility and can thereby motivate yogis to emulate their agility during exercises.

How does it work?

There are two types of Cat Yoga practices.

The first option is to practice Cat Yoga at home. All you need is to have a mat, play some background music, and perform a relaxation session by transitioning through poses, all while your cat is by your side "supervising" the session.

The second option is to participate in a class where you'll be surrounded by cats, often from shelters. By joining a class, you have the opportunity to bond with a cat and even consider adopting it. Furthermore, it provides an excellent chance for associations to facilitate adoptions of these cats in a relaxed environment, where the cats can choose their new family.

What are the benefits?

According to several scientific studies, the presence and purring of a cat have calming effects. Indeed, they can help clear the mind and promote better concentration when executing yoga poses.

Furthermore, yoga arouses the curiosity of cats. Therefore, it's a great opportunity to strengthen the bond between you and your cat and share enjoyable moments together.

Feeling inspired? Don't hesitate to try out this adorable practice or to participate in cat yoga classes near you. You might just make a furry friend very happy!
