This yoga class gives downward facing dog a whole new meaning.

On Sunday, July 28, the Atlanta Humane Society will host a yoga session that includes adoptable puppies. 

That’s right. While you’re in a warrior pose, there could be a puppy nipping at your toes. And just imagine a puppy in your lap when you’re in the lotus position.

The class will be taught by a certified instructor from Bring It Om Yoga.

This is a fundraiser, so tickets are $30, and they’re selling fast. All money will benefit animals at the Atlanta Humane Society.
