Yogahaven has teamed up with Battersea Dogs & Cats Home for an evening of Doga (dog yoga, to the uninitiated)…
On Thursday 21st March yogahaven’s founder, Allie Hill, will take the lead – quite literally – in this rather special fundraising class. To the amusement of some five of Battersea’s furry friends, this 90-minute yoga class will take place on the vertiginous seventh floor of Battersea’s eye-catching blue centre in London, overlooking some of the Capital’s most iconic landmarks. From downward dog to cat pose this class is suitable for all levels, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
Visiting yogis will be greeted by a group of ex Battersea residents and pre-yoga, will have the opportunity to mingle with the mutts among the yoga mats while listening to a talk from Battersea’s longstanding volunteer Chris McLean. After the session, you will enjoy a well-earned drink and power-snack will follow, courtesy of Brickwood, with all guests leaving with a great goody bag, and possibly dreaming of adopting a new dog…?
Allie Hill, founder of yogahaven comments: “We are thrilled to unveil this fantastic event with our great friends and neighbours, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Our Clapham branch of yogahaven has long-supported the charity and, as a team of dog lovers, it’s a cause close to our hearts.
There’s so much we can learn from our canine companions: they are so present, aware and tuned into the world; free of resentment and with an innate sense of play which – as we all know – relieves stress, sparks creativity and forges connections with others.
We are very much looking forward to hosting London’s yogis at what will no doubt be a barking mad evening!”
