When it comes to yoga poses, downward-facing dog is yesterday's news. Now, it's all about reclining cats and scampering kitties — and having furry, friendly felines in the room with you.
Okay, okay, so we just made up those two positions; however we wouldn't dare joke when it comes to Brisbane's latest exercise trend. And, at Stretch Yoga's next event, working out with a purrfect pal isn't the only thing on the agenda. Should you fall in love with one of the cute critters, you can also take it home with you.
That's right, stretching your limbs, potentially adding a cat to your family and helping a creature from Kitt Kat Care go hand in hand at the studio's Kitten Yoga Adoption Day. With all that on offer at 5.30pm and 6.30pm April 27 in the CBD, at 12.30pm and 1.30pm on April 28 at Holland Park, and at the same time and place on May 5 — but this time throwing pilates into the mix — resistance is futile. Just remember to book in for the classes in advance, because this kitty bonanza is certain to be popular.
And, if you'd rather do pilates with a pooch, that's on offer too — as part of Stretch Yoga's Stretch for a Stray animal-oriented birthday weekend.
