GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. (WIVB) — A studio on Grand Island lets you get into a downward facing dog, with a kitten by your side.
The Soma Cura Wellness Center hosted a “cat yoga” session on Friday.
The owners of the studio are big cat lovers. They are working with local animal shelters to give people and cats a unique experience.
Yoga instructor Joshua Zimmerman said “Cats are innately spiritual. They connect with the frequencies of relaxation, and they really enjoy the meditative experience. So, going through a yoga flow, as we become more relaxed, the cats love that interaction.”
The studio held another cat yoga session on Sunday afternoon.
Donations went to a participating animal shelter, so they can find loving homes for animals like these.
