It’s one of the latest yoga trends.
Studios and animal welfare groups are working together to create a new atmosphere in yoga classes that both encourages the adoption of kittens and helps them to become more comfortable around people.
The latest class will be Saturday in Trophy Club. It’s a fundraiser to benefit local rescue animals as well as an adoption event.
“Like many shelters and rescues in the area, my resources are stretched thin,” said Susan Edstrom, an animals advocate in Trophy Club. “I wanted to try something unique to try and boost adoptions, and I’m grateful Christina was excited to be a part of it!”
Christina Fuller, who runs the Fuller Rhythm Studio in Trophy Club, agreed to host the event, in which 10 kittens ranging in age from eight weeks to a year will roam the room Saturday as a maximum of 18 people participate in the yoga class.
The $10 registration fee for participants will help cover medical costs for Lucy, a sick kitten who was brought to Edstrom.
“Lucy is with us until she’s well and then I’ll work on getting her a home,” Edstrom said. “That’s what I do. I take in the sick ones, the well ones — and do what I can with the number of fosters that I have.”
The class is 10-11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at the Fuller Rhythm Studio, 905 Trophy Club Drive, Trophy Club.

“Enjoy a relaxing yoga class with some of our adorable kittens looking for their purrrrect home,” a flier for the event reads.
