PORTLAND, Oregon — If you've been looking for the PURR-fect workout to do at home right now, the Oregon Humane Society is launching a class that you just might love.

Think regular yoga is the cat's meow? Try yoga with an adorable litter of kittens!

Well, technically you only get to hangout with the kittens virtually - but that doesn't make them any less cute. If holding a kitten gives you a warm fuzzy feeling that relaxes your soul, you might get that same feline - I mean, feeling - from kittens on your phone or computer screen.

Virtual Kitten Yoga is a 45 minute class, led by yoga instructor Diana Hulet. The class is open to all levels, and will include a series of gentle movements. And kittens. Did I mention kittens?

The class costs $15, and proceeds will benefit shelter animals at the Oregon Humane Society. There are currently 100 cats and kittens in foster care right now, and OHS says it expects that number to reach close to 300 in the next few months of "kitten season" (every spring, there is a boom of stray kittens born, so this time of year gets that adorable name).

There are four Virtual Kitten Yoga classes throughout May:

  • Thursday, May 15 at 6 p.m.
  • Friday, May 16 at 10 a.m.
  • Thursday, May 28 at 6 p.m.
  • Friday, May 29 at 10 a.m.

You can sign up for the class right meow here.

Want to virtually hangout with more cute animals? Watch this playlist of animal segments on Tonight With Cassidy.

Cassidy Quinn is the host of Tonight With Cassidy on KGW. But right now, like many of you, she is working from home (without any pets, sadly), trying to focus on the happier things going on in the world. Tonight With Cassidy is currently on hiatus, but you can watch previous segments from the show here, and follow Cassidy on Twitter @CassidyQuinn.
