PHOENIX — Move over goats -- though, we're big fans -- because kitten yoga is pouncing back into the yoga game.

Yogis will be able to practice their kitten-tree poses surrounded by adoptable kittens during the summer because the Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL), a no-kill animal shelter in Phoenix, is hosting hour-long "kitten yoga" sessions in June, July and August, at the Scottsdale Quarter.

The sessions are scheduled for Saturday, June 22, July 27 and August 24 from 8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. They will be held in a vacant space next to Urban Outfitters, 15037 N Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85254, according to the release.

Classes are open to those 14 and older, and children will need to be accompanied by an adult, the release said.

The cost is $20 in advance and $25 at the door, which will benefit the shelter. Tickets can be purchased on AAWL's website, here.

According to the AAWL's website, the June 22 class has sold out.

After each class, the shelter will also open an adoption pop-up store where kittens will be available for adoption.

Amanda Ventura with Evolve PR and Marketing, which represents the AAWL, said via email that there are usually two dozen kittens up for adoption at each event. The adoption fee is $150. The adoption pop-up will be open from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on the three dates listed above.
