What to Know
- Saturday, March 23
- LA State Historic Park
- Free general admission; $25 all-access class pass in advance, $35 there
While downward dog, one of the classic poses of any yoga routine, can make a person promptly think of a canine enjoying a satisfying stretch, the back-opening favorite isn't the only on-the-mat movement that reminds we humans of dogs.
In fact, just about every pose has a bit of pup to it, and you don't have to stretch too far to prove why: Dogs are forever in the moment, a state yoga practitioners seek to summon with every practice.
Call canines some of the most ultimate yogis out there. And call Saturday, March 23 the day to celebrate that, and also find your own center, in the sunshine, among other humans and hounds at LA State Historic Park.
What to do, where to go and what to see
The arf-able event is called Puppies & Planks, which tells you much, while simultaneously pulling your heartstrings.
Oh yeah, and March 23? It's National Puppy Day, if your heartstrings need further tugging.
The under-the-sky fest'll feature "... fitness, pups, shopping, food, and more!"
The fitness part? Look for a number of classes, including POP Pilates and Yoga for Tight Everything (the creator of the day, by the by, is Cassey Ho of Blogilates, who'll be teaching POP Pilates).
PETCO is presenting the Fido-licious fun, which will also include a 3K dog walk, food trucks (yep, they're billed as "healthy"), and an LA Animal Services Adoption Zone.
Getting in? Woof a happy woof now: It's totally free, but should you want to join a class, like Ruff Yoga (described as "GREAT FOR YOUR PUP!"), you'll want have some funds handy.
As in $25 for the all-access class pass, if you book in advance. That covers six classes, oh yeah, and if you decide to buy the pass there, it is $35.
All money raised goes to LA Animal Services, as does the registration fee for the 3K dog walk. That's five bucks ahead of time, $15 there.
Arf? Arf. Spend National Puppy Day with a bunch of beings that understand being present, in the moment, and fully connected, every minute of every day.
