Two of my favorite things:
2) Rescue puppies
I had the opportunity to sneak into YogaFit’s fundraiser for Midwest Animal Rescue Services (MARS) which included a yoga class and PUPPIES.
The sold-out event was created by Joni Friedkin of YogaFit Northeast. Her first collaboration with MARS was such a hit and had a waitlist of many. She decided to have another at the Linden Hills location.
A donation of $20 or more got you in the door and before the yoga class started, a bunch of puppies were unleashed into the yoga studio bringing lots of kisses to share. The volunteers from MARS gave all the yoga students treats to hand out to the pups as they ran across the mats, played with toys and were picked up and loved by all the students. I actually can’t say I did much yoga, but I did get my puppy fix. If I already didn’t have a zoo of rescue animals at home, then I would’ve stuffed my car full of pups (hello divorce papers). The best part of the event is that over $1300 was raised for MARS and 100% went directly to the rescue.
Because of the popularity of these events, there are more to come! YAY! Make sure to follow YogaFit Linden Hills and YogaFit Northeast to get all the details on upcoming events. They have many more fun events along with the Puppies and Yoga class. My suggestion, sign up ASAP when the event goes live because they sell out FAST!
If you haven’t been to YogaFit, check them out! Your first week is FREE (with the exception of special events like this one).
