Bunny (Or Cat) Yoga

There’s been an influx of animals joining in on yoga sessions at various places across Metro Vancouver recently. The events are usually to fundraise for shelters and help bunnies and kitties find their fur-ever homes. In the past, places like Sunberry Fitness (440-4400 Hazelbridge Way) and Stretch Vancouver (180 E Pender Street) have housed bunny yoga and cats on your mats. Due to their popularity, there will surely be more classes in the near future!
