What’s Bunny Yoga?
This is a easy flow/yin yoga class with bunnies roaming around you. The bunnies are free to choose humans they like and explore the space while you practice yoga.
The yoga sequences are put together to be bun friendly and to encourage bunny-human interaction.
This class is beginner friendly and children friendly (6 years or older), and you get to hangout with the bunnies after class.
Feel free to bring your phone or camera and take lots of photos before, during, or after class and share your photos with us! #sunberryfitness #bunnyyoga

An Amazing Cause
Bunny yoga classes are charity events in support of Bandaids for Bunnies. They are a local bunny shelter located in Richmond completely run by volunteers. Proceed* goes to paying for Bunnies food, hay, and medical bills.
Bunnies are available for adoption and fostering (not just the ones in the class)
*total proceed less cost of running the class.
Can I bring my bunny?
Please leave your bunny at home. Rabbits are territorial animals. Two bunnies who are not pair-bonded can start attacking each another while defending their territory.
All of the bunnies at the yoga class are pair-bonded.
You are welcomed to take photos and video footage of the class. So you can share them with your bunny at home 🙂
Can I bring my kids?
Children must be supervised by a parent or guardian during the event.
Children 6 years and older are welcomed. Children under 6 years old should have extensive animal experience.
Please consult your doctor to make sure they do not have hay, rabbit or mite allergies.
Can I come and watch the class?
To ensure the studio is enjoyable and comfortable, we only allow ticket holders, staffs and volunteers during the class.
If you are a member of the media and would like to film or take photos of the class please contact us ahead of time.
Can I adopt the bunnies?
Bandaids for Bunnies have bunnies available for fostering and adoption. View their animals on their Petfinder page. If you have fostering or adoption related questions, feel free to reach out to Janet or Krystal on Facebook or in person after the yoga class.
Not all of the bunnies at the yoga classes are up for adoption or fostering. Most of them are from a special group that Bandaids for Bunnies formed for educational and outreach purposes.
Can I take photos during class?
Yes, you are welcomed to bring your phone/camera to your yoga mat during class. Please have your phone on silent or airplane mode – it is still a yoga class!
Can I pick the bunnies up?
Please don’t pick the bunnies up. They are prey animals and can become frightened when they involuntarily leave the ground.
