By Staff | Dec 30, 2020

The Cape Coral Animal Shelter has announced Yoga at the Shelter will be adding additional classes beginning Saturday, Jan. 2, from 9-10 a.m.

“The community has embraced this event supporting the shelter, giving all who attend time for some self-care. Because of the interest, we are adding additional classes on Saturdays for those who cannot attend during the week. CCAS staff will continue to be available to answer questions and provide tours afterward for those have not seen the facility,” stated Liz McCauley, executive director.

Yoga classes benefit anyone at any level. Focus is on flexibility, balance and range of motion, structured for anyone looking to stretch the entire body, release tension and relax the mind.

Class instructor Robin Anne Griffiths will lead each class held Wednesdays, from 10-11 a.m. and each Saturday, 9-10 a.m. The cost is $10 per person, per class, and $8 for shelter volunteers. The shelter will receive 50% of all proceeds.

Attendees are advised to bring their yoga mat, a large towel or sheet for ground cover, water and as an option yoga blocks and strap if desired. Prior sign-up is not required but early arrival is advised for paperwork and set up.

The Cape Coral Animal Shelter mission is to engage a special bond between people and animals by means of adoption services, medical care, education and training for the prevention of cruelty and abandonment. Animals will remain in the shelter’s care until they are placed in a qualified, forever home. More information on the shelter can be found at www.capecoralanimalshelter.com.
