I had this crazy idea a while back, that I should try yoga. Lingering lower back pain from a car accident, combined with age, and a fairly sedentary lifestyle means I’m not feeling, how would you phrase it.. not quite as bendy as I once was? The idea of yoga seemed appealing to me because; I’m not a gym person, and I don’t enjoy traditional exercising. Running? Forget about it.
Our family all got yoga mats and we decided to give yoga a shot at home, watching an on-demand, introductory-level yoga instructional video. I made it through one 15-minute session. The yoga mat was rolled up, shoved under my bed, and hasn’t seen the light of day since. Do you know why I failed? Because my yoga session didn’t include kittens.

You’ve surely heard of “cat cafes”, right? There is one in Bozeman. And people practice yoga with all kinds of animals. There’s goat yoga in Missoula, dog yoga classes, even horse yoga. Now, you can take Kitty Yoga in Billings. The event is hosted by Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter, Thursday, November 18th at the YVAS Learning Center at 2010 Grand Ave, Suite 1.
