My human saw on Facebook that Basepaws (the company that offers Cat DNA tests) was having a yoga class event online. It was being held live on their Facebook page, and titled “Beginner’s Yoga (with Cats),” so I had to join in. Even if I am not a beginner.
I couldn’t wait to get started! And neither could my human.
Some of the poses were totally easy, like Cat Pose. But my human had complaints. Mainly that I was in the way of her own yoga practice.
But she had a solution! I have my own yoga mat. So she brought it out and set it in front of the TV so we could do yoga together.
I thought that worked out pretty well. We both had a good view of what the yoga instructor was doing.
I confess, I did lose track of what the instructor was doing sometimes because I wasn’t always looking at the TV. Or listening to her instructions.
Plus not all the poses were cat friendly! I could not figure out how to do Warrior Pose.
I got bored partway through and decided I was done. My human said I was too distracting. Fortunately, the class is still on the Basepaws page so she can go back to it.
If you want to try the yoga class yourself, do it! Baseline has classes periodically, and you can donate (although you don’t have to), with the money going to a cat cafe and rescue.
I actually love doing yoga with my human for real! Does your cat join in when you’re on the mat? Let me know in the comments.
