Chicken Therapy: A Novel Approach to Well-being

Beyond their entertainment value, chickens have emerged as emotional support animals in recent years. Studies indicate that interacting with animals releases serotonin, reducing loneliness, lowering blood pressure, and alleviating anxiety.

Ybor City’s Rich History with Chickens

Ybor City boasts a deep-rooted connection to chickens, dating back to the 19th century. Immigrants established farms and homesteads, relying on the animals for sustenance. In 1989, Tampa Bay was designated as a bird sanctuary, protecting these feathered residents from harm.

Monthly Hen Yoga Classes

In keeping with the area’s avian heritage, Union Three Studio will host monthly hen yoga classes featuring the sanctuary’s chickens. These sessions offer yogis a unique opportunity to connect with nature, embrace animal therapy, and enjoy a lighthearted fitness experience.
