EUGENE, Ore. -- A local yoga studio and animal shelter teamed up for a very relaxing fundraiser on Sunday.
Greenhill Humane Society hosted Cat Yoga in its cattery. Brie Huling, an instructor with Eugene Yoga, lead the 60-minute gentle yoga class while adoptable cats roamed freely around them.
"Cats are a good reminder to stay in the present...with thinking minds we can get stuck in the past or skip ahead to future thinking," said Huling.
After the class, everyone got to enjoy an additional 30 minutes to play with the shelter cats.
If you missed class on Sunday, the next one is scheduled for July 22.
The class costs $20 and the money raised goes towards Greenhill's Capital Campaign, which will pay for new buildings.
