Pilates with Puppies

Pilates with Puppies is a fundraiser for the Asheville Humane Society. All classes are located at the ASHEVILLE HUMANE SOCIETY. 14 Forever Friend Lane, Asheville NC 28806.

How it all started

In early June 2017, I was at an event where the Asheville Humane Society had a bunch of puppies available for adoption. I asked to hold a puppy, and at that moment decided that I needed more puppies in my life.

There is a new trend with Yoga with Cats, Yoga with Goats, Yoga with Horses....so I decided that I wanted to do Pilates with Puppies. I contacted the Asheville Humane Society and we scheduled our first class for October 2017. For $15, participants take a mixed level Pilates class (beginner friendly), and AHS supplies the puppies for our entertainment. 100% of tickets sales are donated to AHS.

We will continue this awesome fundraiser class about once a month, or when we can secure puppies and the space at AHS.

I would love for Pilates with Puppies to become a class taught all over the world. My hope is that wherever it is taught, that $ will go back to the local animal shelter to help animals find forever homes.

 
We could go on and on about how amazing dogs are. Not just because of their unconditional love but also because of all the physical and mental benefits that come along with owning a canine pal.

That’s why it comes as no surprise that they’ve inspired one of the most adorable workout trends ever: Puppy Pilates.
