If you’re up for some physical activity this weekend, San Antonio’s offerings are sure to make you break a sweat – yoga, 5K race, or stair-climbing extravaganza, anyone? But if you’d rather take it easy, the city has other entertainment in store for you, too.

The Amazing Acro-Cats

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but apparently you can teach cats many. The Amazing Acro-Cats are a group of performing house cats who “roll on balls, ride skateboards, jump through hoops,” according to the event description. There are a total of six “purrformances” Friday through Monday at the Josephine Theatre, and tickets start at $24. Expect a two-hour show, with a finale from Tuna and the Rock Cats, an all-cat band with a guitarist, keyboardist, woodblock player, trumpet player, saxophone player, and Albacore, the cat, bringing in more cowbell. In a show of interspecies relational success, Cluck Norris, the chicken, joins the Rock Cats on tambourine.
Friday – Monday

Wizards and Wands Arts and Crafts Show

If you love Harry Potter, Merlin, Maleficent, or other non-licensed magical stories, check out the Wonderland of the Americas this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday starting at 10 a.m., vendors will showcase art, toys, and collectibles for wizard fans. And on Sunday at 3 p.m., there’s a costume contest for adults, so bring your robe and wand for a chance to win a prize.

Tap That Asana at Alamo Beer

On Saturday, Mobile Om will take over Alamo Beer’s beer hall for a vinyasa yoga class. The class is donation based, with a suggested donation of $15. So bring a mat and get ready to stretch, bend, and enjoy a beer after class.

The Super Run 5K/10K

The Super Run, a national run that raises funds for different nonprofits, is coming to San Antonio’s Wheatley Heights Sports Complex this Saturday. The event is not timed, so you can take it at your own pace. If you register before race day online, the 5K costs $29.99 and the 10K $34.99. There are also VIP and “virtual runner” options. If you decide to buy a ticket at the event, both races cost $45. If you’ve already registered, packet pickup runs from 4-7 p.m. at Fleet Feet, 7322 Jones Maltsberger Rd. Otherwise, you can pick up your packet before your race starts. The schedule for the race can be found here. Have fun, and be super!

Yoga on the Spurs Court

This one explains itself: step onto the court that hosted Spurs greats like Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili for a yoga class led by five local instructors at the AT&T Center on Sunday. For $30, you’ll get a yoga session, tickets to Sunday’s game against Washington Wizards, and a Spurs-branded water bottle. Bring your own mat as only a limited number will be provided. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Spurs’ nonprofit Silver & Black Giveback. Find tickets here.
Doors open at 12 p.m.
