Pet yoga is addicting and adorable.

Yoga is gaining in popularity and pet yoga is sidling right along with it.

Shelters have used yoga at adoption events, promoting free-roaming mingling between the adoptable animals and yogis on their mats.

Now pet yoga is becoming mainstream as people see the benefits of combining the mindful workout poses with the serenity and comfort of animals.
