The Cape Coral Animal Shelter (CCAS) is pleased to announce Yoga at the Shelter will begin weekly beginning December 2nd. “We are happy to provide a community event for our staff, volunteers and others interested in joining the classes. Attendees can enjoy the space the community has so generously helped us build for the animals in need,” stated Liz McCauley, Executive Director. For those who attend the classes and have not seen the facility, CCAS staff will be available to answer questions and provide tours afterward.
Class instructor, Robin Anne Griffiths said, “These outdoor classes are excellent for those new to yoga as they are gentle and slow paced, but all levels of yoga participants can benefit. Instruction will focus on flexibility, balance, range of motion and releasing tension.” Classes will be held from 10-11 am each Wednesday. Cost will be $10 per person per class with shelter volunteers receiving a discount of $8.00 and 50% of all proceeds going to the shelter. 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. A safe place, where animals will remain in our care until they are placed in a qualified, forever home. More information on the Shelter can be found at www.capecoralanimalshelter.com.
