Kitty yoga: Feline physical and spiritual masters

Need a cure for the Monday blues? Our photo feature is here to help provide a brief diversion from your workday routine with a small dose of squee, wow and awwww. Enjoy!

Want the secret to improving almost anything? Just add pets. By following that advice, Los Angeles-based Turtle Flow Yoga managed to improve upon a practice dating back thousands of years: yoga with cats. And they weren’t just any cats. They were cats available for adoption from NKLA Coalition partners. Steer yourself onto a path of enlightened consciousness by enjoying images of people and cats doing yoga poses from the inaugural class at the NKLA Adoption Center. And if you’re in the “city of angels,” join the fun and attend a future class. Namaste.
