Friends Forever Humane Society hosts puppy yoga – WIFR

FREEPORT, Ill. (WIFR) What better way to relax than practicing yoga? Well, Friends Forever Humane Society in Freeport is kicking things up a notch with puppy yoga!

The shelter held its first ever puppy yoga event Tuesday evening where four little puppies had the chance to run around during a yoga practice. From downward dog to tree pose, these pooches really shook up the vinyasa. Organizers say it’s a great way for the pups to get outside and interacting with people. One of the dogs was even taken to its fur-ever home afterward.

“This gives them a unique way to play with people outside of the normal meet and greet. You get to play with the puppies as you’re in different poses and you get to come down to their level and they see you come down to their level, so it’s just a fun and different way to see their personalities,” said yoga instructor Laura Youngblut.
