Downward dog was a popular pose at puppy yoga, hosted by Sweet Freedom Yoga Studio and Boutique this weekend.

Studio owner Jocelyn Lywood and yoga instructor Angela Kyllo teamed up to offer yoga with puppies at the studio in Salmon Arm on Saturday. Dec 17. The puppies in attendance were from Kyllo’s sister’s dog, and most of them are looking for their forever homes.

Interested adopters can phone 250-634-1832.

Ten per cent of the class fees collected are being donated to the SPCA by Kyllo and Lywood and the two hope to host SPCA events in the future, where adoptable animals from the shelter can come and yoga class participants can meet new furry friends.

This was Sweet Freedom studio’s first time hosting puppy yoga and first time donating to the SPCA. Lywood has owned the studio at 2450 10 Ave. in the back of the Jungle Mania building since 2018.

The SPCA is in need of canned dog and cat food and dog toys particularly right now, and anyone interested in donating can find more information and donation links at the Shuswap BC SPCA website.
