Visit Cat Cafe Mad to practice yoga with some real experts on stretching and relaxation – our cats!
Easy yoga is optional; you can always just sit on the couches and pet the cats. Please bring your own yoga mat, an open mind, a smile, and a cat-themed outfit if you are feeling a little playful!
During this class, we will learn an energizing breathing technique to get warmed up for the class, go through a series of exercises that bring awareness to all of the joints in the body, follow a slow and meditative flow of sun-salutations and various asanas, and end in a meditation and brief knowledge session.
Get ready to feel purr-fectly relaxed, refreshed, and rejuvenated!

Meet Sarah Kangas, Cat Cafe Mad’s yoga teacher:
“My yoga journey began nearly 10 years ago as a physical supplement to my normal gym routine. Now that I am half way through my 200 hour YTT, I’ve come to realize the journey is never over, nor is it always physical! As a yoga guide, I want yogis to leave classes feeling empowered and more in tune with their bodies. Yoga is a path for every body and not just those who are already flexible! I aim to create a welcoming class to all those curious about honoring their bodies. Yoga, for me, is much deeper than pretzel poses and cute clothes. It is a way for everyone to settle into your own body, wherever it may be today. Yoga is about being present in the mind. My three cats have helped my home practice by challenging me to remain centered while sharing space on my mat. I’ve learned to appreciate body rubs against my face when certain poses become challenging to hold!
My goal is to help yogis feel safe in exploring quietness found within their bodies while enjoying the soft padding or purring of cats around them!”
