Andrea Jordan has been teaching yoga since 2006. Her classes are designed for all levels and include a mix of styles like Ashtanga, Flow, Detox & Restore. She is excited to teach Cat Yoga at the Fort McMurray SPCA and to be able to share with the community her passion for yoga and cats!

Anne has been teaching yoga at the YMCA since 2014. She teaches a mixture of hatha and yin yoga, and sometimes brings little heavy metal to the class. She loves the energy the cats bring to the practice and would love it for you to come join them at the SPCA.

My name is Amanda McCann. I am a yoga instructor here in Fort McMurray. I teach at Oxygen and Keyano and I sub at Oranj. I have been teaching since 2015 and my classes are mostly vinyasa flow with different modifications that work well for all levels. I love the laughter that cat yoga brings to a sometimes serious practice and of course the chance to cuddle a kitty on a Saturday morning.

Fort McMurray SPCA’s Cat Yoga Program

What do cats and yogis have in common? They both love to stretch! And now they can stretch together: Introducing Fort McMurray’s first Cat Yoga Class. This Hatha Yoga course is not only healthy and fun, it also helps to socialize and enrich the lives of the shelter cats, as well as, encourages adoption by showing off the cats awesome personalities by interacting with them.

Cat Yoga is a by donation program. All proceeds raised will go towards the materials, supplies and medical care of the animals in our care.

A $20.00 donation allows us to microchip every animal in our care. Microchips are implantable computer chips that encode a unique identification number to help reunite owners with their lost pet.

A $25.00 donation allows us to provide vaccinations for our furry friends. Each animal will receive vaccinations to protect them from rabies, distemper, parvovirus, infectious hepatitis, bordetella, feline leukemia and others.

A $35.00 donation will provide enough litter for a feline in our cares entire stay. A sufficient supply of clean litter is vital to helping them maintain their health and good manners.

A $50.00 donation allows animal enrichment for one of our shelter guests. Enrichment refers to the mental and physical stimulation that increases the behavioral wellness of our shelter animals. Allowing animals to think, learn and explore goes a long way to keeping them behaviorally healthy in shelter.

A $75.00 donation allows us to spay or neuter one of our shelter guests. Spaying and neutering makes a big difference on population control. Just one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 pups in six years. In seven years one female cat and her offspring can produce 370,000 kittens! Every animal in our care receives this surgery prior to adoption.
