Yoga Cat of the Meowth


Tonchi is our eldest cat at 13 years old. She is the queen of the house, and the house rules are that any mew Yoga Cats are to get along with her in order to stay (all have). I have never had a cat until Tonchi, believe it or not Omar is the cat person, and she opened a whole mew world that I am so thankful to be a part of meow.

Tonchi, otherwise known as “The Touch” is a quiet cat who LOVES fresh fish, where then she may greet you with the daintiest meow. And, she has been known to be on the jazz from time-to-time, but spends most of her time in various queen perches in the house.

Tonchi is the harmony. She is loved and respected by the Yoga Dogs and is heeded by all the Yoga Cats. Her quiet strength, keeps order and calm throughout the house. Although she hasn’t been to a yoga class, her pawsome ability for peace and calm is felt.

Mews and Services


Every day is different in our bodies and our minds and we need to acknowledge and nurture ourselves each day with whatever resources are available. Some days we feel like having a little more intensity in our practice and some days we just need more child’s pose.

In the Bending Tree meow mix of classes you can choose what works for you and also know, if you’re feeling Yoga Strong today and find that maybe you need a rest, take it. Take child’s pose during class at any time — I mean it. It is very impawtant to listen to your body.

Here’s what is on the schedule for the remainder of the season:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday
2 sessions — 8:30 – 9:15 a.m. & 9:45 – 10:30 a.m.
These classes are a fun mix of poses for all levels and include Yoga Cats.

Tuesday, Thursday
2 sessions
Yoga Strong 8:30-9:15 a.m. This class focuses more on strength postures and repetitions similar to a YogaPilates class. Its focus is to work core, quads, abs shoulders and balance. This class is for all levels and includes Yoga Dog Benny’s fun & sweet energy along with Yoga Cats.

Gentle Yoga 10-10:45 a.m. This class features gentle stretches to open and release in the body and mind. Also for all levels and especially when you just need some rejuvenation in your day. This class also includes Yoga Dog Benny along with Yoga Cats.

MEW! Yoga Strong class on Saturday 9-9:45 a.m. This class was added by request as we work toward becoming Yoga Strong in all aspects of our lives.

All classes are drop in and mats are available for all students. Cost is 150 pesos per class; 750 for a 6-pack (buy 5 get 1 free) or 1000 for a YogaPawsome Deal (monthly unlimited classes).
