Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary invites you to Yoga With Tigers, in collaboration with Erika Cain, RYT-200. Yoga With Tigers is an ongoing series in Sarasota, Florida.

Join us for a unique yoga experience, where tigers and other big cats will safely be in their habitats, as Erika guides participants through a yoga flow surrounded by the sounds of mother nature. This alignment-based class synchronizes breath with movement for you to deepen the mind-body connection and tune into your spirit animal. Practice is for most levels, so you can be gentle on the body if you choose. Allow yourself to be transformed by this flow as you immerse yourself in the outdoor environment and powerful energy of the animals.

We will be pacticing social distancing throughout the class and mats will be placed 6ft apart.

Big Cat Habitat hopes that this event will help guests connect with our majestic animals in a new way and support our mission to provide a safe, loving and permanent home for big cats and other exotic creatures in need. We take pride in educating our guests on the importance of species preservation to ensure the survival of these magnificent animals for future generations and to keep alive the human-animal connection in our world and in our community.

Guests will need to bring their own yoga mats, towels and any other props they wish to use for their practice. We will have refreshments and light snacks available. The cost for our monthly event is $40.00 and will include the yoga session as well as a single day pass to return to Big Cat Habitat during normal business hours. There are a limited number of spaces available for this event, advanced registration is strongly encouraged.
