Yoga with cats? Meow!!

More than a novelty, the folks at Purringtons Cat Lounge in Portland say yoga with cats is about "joy, mixing energy, and helping light the fire of compassion."  During each session, the asana, or active part of the practice, spans one hour.  The remaining 30 minutes of class allows practitioners to find their meditative seat and/or spend time simply enjoying, sharing space and playing with the cats. Class is open to all skill levels, as instructors format classes to be accessible and enjoyable for all.  Classes are held Sundays at 6:30 and cost $20; arriving early is recommended for a chance to get settled.
