(WXYZ) — Bring your cows, cats, camels and downward dogs to the Detroit Zoo this summer!

Yoga at the Zoo will be held on Mondays and Thursdays from 7:30 to 9 a.m, beginning July 8 through August 29. It will be available to guests 13 years and older.

“Practicing yoga outdoors surrounded by nature and wildlife before the Zoo opens to the public will be an incredible way to begin the day,” said Ron Kagan, executive director and CEO for the Detroit Zoological Society, in a release.

Yoga at the Zoo sessions will take place at various animal habitats. Guests will need to bring their own yoga mat and water bottle. Participants can enter the zoo starting at 7:15 a.m.

According to DZS, it is a rain or shine event. The rain location will be the Wildlife Interpretive Gallery.

The cost per session is $20 and includes Detroit Zoo admission. Parking is $8. Child care is available for $8 – children must be 4 years or older and potty-trained.
