About the event
Did you know?.....A study revealed that those who spent more time with dogs experienced a 300 percent increase in oxytocin levels. A whopping 87% of Americans were reported as happier than the average person because of owning a pet.
Please join us for a dog filled day as we end the dog days of summer. This is a morning of relaxation, yoga, dogs, shopping and sunshine!
We will kick this morning off with DOG YOGA! Yes, you read that right. You've heard of goat yoga....Well now we have DOG YOGA and its for a truly amazing cause. Meet us (and some marvelous dogs) on your yoga matts. Pet, snuggle & fall in love with the dogs of NAWS animal shelter in Mokena . Sam from Yoga with Sam will be leading the class. This is an all levels yoga class so everyone is welcome. There is a cost to attend yoga but the remainder of this event is FREE to attend. Yoga is optional.
Although this is a dog friendly event , we ask that only the dogs up for adoption with NAWS participate in the yoga portion of this event.
From there you will be able to mingle & shop with local pet businesses and chat with NAWS about pet adoptions. If you should decide to adopt your new best friend at this event you will also go home with a swag bag of goodies which includes items from each of our vendors.
