KNOXVILLE - Why do a "downward-facing dog" pose when you can perform a "down kitten?"
The yoga studio held a kitten yoga session Sunday afternoon as tons of the adorable creatures wandered around while the class moved through poses.
The class even came up with its own kitty-inspired pose called the "down kitten."
The goal was to put a little extra fun and relaxation into the class while raising awareness to the upcoming seasonal kitten population boom that occurs when the weather begins to heat up.
Young-Williams' developer coordinator Sophie Nguyen said they receive the largest numbers of unwanted litters in the spring, making it tougher to find forever-homes for each kitten.
"The cats will be coming in droves, so that's why spaying and neutering your pet is very important on top of adoptions," Nguyen said.
