July 25th, 2024
12:00 AM - 1:00 AM
1266 Valencia Street San Francisco, CA 94110, KitTea Cat Lounge

Cat Pilates (Purrlates) with 20+ Adorable Cats (SF’s Cat Cafe) KitTea San Francisco’s only Cat Cafe hosts their mew Purrlates class in their cat lounge with 20+ cats on select Wednesday and Friday evenings. Each class lasts around 30-40 minutes, giving you time to mingle with cats, sip on a glass of sparkling wine (Friday nights only), or shop in our cat centric gift shop for the remainder of the hour. Cats on Mats: Purrlates Next Dates: – Wednesday, June 19, 2024 | 5pm – Wednesday, June 26, 2024 | 5pm – Friyay, June 28, 2024 | 7pm (w/ complimentary drink) – Wednesday, July 17, 2024 | 5pm – Wednesday, July 24, 2024 | 5pm – Friyay, July 26, 2024 | 7pm (w/ complimentary drink) KitTea Cat Lounge & Cafe, 1266 Valencia St. (btwn 23rd and 24th), SF Tickets: $38 – includes a complimentary drink (Fridays only) + pilates + cuddling with 20+ cats We recommend you wear a tee shirt or long sleeve shirt, as many of our cats like to hop on backs during these sessions (it can be a little unpurrdictable). We also advise that you show up ready to go in your purrlates workout outfit, as we only have one restroom for changing and to bring a water bottle just in case you get parched during your session. *It is optional to bring your own mat, but we will be providing clean pilates mats as well. About KitTea Cat Lounge & Cafe Purroud to be the first established cat cafe in the USA and the only cat cafe in San Francisco, CA. KitTea turned into a cat sanctuary in 2020 to provide high-quality care to our permanent resident rescue felines and feature cats from rescues in order to socialize and find them homes at each cat’s own pace. We like to think of a visit in our Cat Lounge as spa-like; a massage without the massage (unless you get Tippi on your lap). The process is akin to buying a ticket for a concert, but the band is 20-ish cats and the singing is much better than you’d expect. Upcoming Special Events | Weekly Pricing Weekday, Weekend, and Holiday Cat Lounge Visits (55 min.) = $28 per purrson Mewvie Nights (90 min.) = $32 per purrson – select Saturday nights Purrlates (30-40 min.) = $38 per purrson – select Friday nights Cello and Chill (with Cats) Concert = $35 per purrson – select Friday nights Getting to KitTea KitTea is conveniently located at 1266 Valencia Street in the vibrant Mission District. We’re a short walk from BART and MUNI at 24th and Mission (3 minute walk) and there is street/metered parking within walking distance. About Your Teacher: Robin discovered pilates in 2011, a few years after being hit by a car. Not only did she find it to be the most effective physical rehabilitation for her injuries, it also dramatically improved her overall well being. Her teaching promotes internally-focused movement while de-emphasizing aesthetics. She understands that movement is not one-size-fits-all and strives to help her students discover what works best for their unique bodies.  In addition to being KitTea’s mew purrlates teacher, she also teaches down the street at EHS (without cats). There you can challenge yourself on one of their many reformers. When she’s not teaching she can be found selling property and riding bikes around San Francisco and Marin, or trapped under a very opinionated 9-year old tuxie.  View this post on Instagram A post shared by KitTea Cat Lounge (@kittea_sf) Upcoming Cat Pilates (Purrlates) with 20+ Adorable Cats (SF’s Cat Cafe) Events Wed 7/24 Cat Pilates (Purrlates) with 20+ Adorable Cats (SF’s Cat Cafe)Fri 7/26 Friday Night Pilates (Purrlates) with 20+ Adorable Cats (SF’s Cat Cafe)Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
