What you'll do
We’ll have a yoga class at the Cat House. Yoga encourages body awareness and being in the present moment. In calming the mind, ad reducing stress, anxiety and tension, there is an obvious synergy with the therapeutic benefits that the company of cat brings. More than just yoga with cats. We created a full experience. The first 15 minutes you’ll get to know the space and cats in the Cat House. Once we have the perfect environment, our teacher will guide you through a Yoga session and meditation (some sessions it will be Martin Mezei teaching Hatha Yoga and others Mariana Chiavini teaching SwáSthya Yôga), and afterwards our beautiful cats will take you down a path of innocence, serenity and tranquility as you will have some free time to spend with them.

I’m an animal lover, veterinary with a master in Animal Law and Society. Currently part of Suara’s Foundation Team, a non-for-profit organization which mission is to help stray cats. One of our fundraising activities is the Cat Yoga Experience. For this activity we count with Martin Mezei, Hatha Yoga Teacher with an official certificate in India.

About the organization
The main aim of Suara Foundation is to offer better living conditions to street cats in Barcelona. After receiving all the veterinary care needed, the cats pass through the Cat House of the foundation, located in El Born in Barcelona to help them in their adaptation process to a domestic environment before they find their future families.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Suara Foundation.

Where you'll be
The class is at the cathouse, the physical headquarters of the foundation in which there are a up to total of 8 cats. Located in the centric neighborhood El Born, it’s decorated like a home encouraging the feline residents to feel at ease in a domestic setting while waiting to be adopted. The Cathouse is a unique place in the world that all catlover should meet. Besides playing and spending time with the cats, our goal is that you find in love with one of them… and adopt.
