Hatha, Bikram, Trantra. These are all types of yoga that I’m familiar with. But cat yoga?
When I first read about cat yoga in this article I was intrigued. Most of the cats I’ve ever encountered aren’t shy about using their teeth and claws, so how could this work in a yoga class?
Cat yoga appears to be gathering force in the UK, with various studios offering a session with our favourite feline friends.
The leading establishment in this new trend is Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium.
Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium in Shoreditch, London, initially began as a cat cafe, and has recently began to hold cat yoga sessions every Wednesday.
Whilst regular yoga is known for its relaxing benefits, it is believed that yoga sessions with cats will allow for further relaxation.
Having been assured that all the cats are well trained, I really want to try this out!
Cat yoga at Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium is £15 a session.
