The We Need to Talk exhibition — an open call show of break-up art and artifacts — may have you feeling a little broken-hearted. But those old relationships were in the past. That was zen. This is meow.
On the final day of the exhibition, we invite you to take a moment to “paws” and reflect and heal your broken heart in this Yoga with Cats event hosted by Memphis Animals Services (MAS), Crosstown Arts, and Co-Motion Studio.
MAS will have approximately 10 adoptable cats at the Crosstown Arts gallery from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Adriene Holland, co-owner of Co-Motion Studio, will teach two yoga classes — one at 11 a.m. and another at noon — during which cats will be free-roaming and interacting with the yogis.
People can participate by either attending a class at 11 a.m. or noon, or by visiting between 10 to 11 a.m. or 1 to 2 p.m. to play with (and hopefully adopt) kitties. To attend a class, sign up here. The 11 a.m. class is now full.
The class is free to attend to those who plan to adopt a cat. Participants who aren’t able to adopt a cat are asked to make a pay-what- you-can donation. Participants are asked to bring their own yoga mats, as Crosstown Arts will not have any extra mats to loan.
All cat adoptions at the Yoga with Cats event will be $35 cash-only (nearly half off the regular adoption fee) and will include spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, FIV/FeLV test, customized ID tag (to be picked up at the shelter), and a collar.
