A yoga studio in Illinois invited felines from a local no-kill shelter to show off their moves alongside the human yogis. The event raised more than $500 for the shelter.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Many yoga poses are inspired by animals, or so I'm told. Downward facing dog and cobra are a couple of them.

You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
