‘Tiger yoga’ is all the rage in Sarasota

News

Fancy practicing your downward dog next to a big cat? Well, now you can.

Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary hosts “Tiger Yoga” on the fourth Saturday of every month, offering yogis a unique mind and body experience next to tigers at the facility, some of which reach up to 1,000 pounds. 

Although tigers are involved in this unique mind and body experience, the animals will be a safe distance away, inside of their enclosures.

“It’s an interesting way to get people who may have never practiced yoga before and their here in this unique environment,”  said Erika Cain, the lead instructor at Big Cat Habitat’s Yoga with Tigers. “Sometimes walking into a studio can be a little intimidating but we create this really special environment here surrounded by the tigers.”

“It’s not your typical close your eyes and go into your inner place and stay focused on your yoga practice it’s really about experiencing all the energy of the environment that’s around you,” said Martinez.

Tickets are $40 and they sell out fast, so hurry up and reserve your spot for the next class.
