Watch: Yoga with homeless dogs is the MOST feel-good event of the year!

A yoga event in Cape Town is helping shelter dogs get adopted into loving, happy homes, this is how you can get involved in the feel-good event.


Cape Town, South Africa – On Saturday the 26th of October, the Mdzananda Animal Clinic will be hosting its fourth Downward-Facing-Adopt-A-Dog yoga event. Yoga lovers and dog lovers alike are invited to join this one of a kind yoga class with homeless dogs.

The class will be held under the trees in the beautiful outdoor setting of De Waal Park. Here you will get to enjoy a one hour, gentle flow yoga class while meeting a variety of homeless dogs up for adoption. Be prepared to get a lick from a dog while stretching into your Downward Dog position.

The class will be led by local yoga instructor Lee-Ann Elliott and will be guided by Tombstone Pete’s live acoustic music.

“We are extremely excited to announce our fourth Downward-Facing-Adopt-a-Dog event, a one of a kind yoga class with homeless dogs.

All funds raised go to the Mdzananda Animal Clinic in Khayelitsha and the more people who attend, the better the chance of getting some dogs adopted.”

The firsts Downward-Facing-Adopt-A-Dog took place in October 2018 with sixty-five people attending. A total of R6000 was raised. The second took place in April 2019 with one hundred people joining, and R10400 was raised.

The class will start at 10:30 am, but you are advised to be there at 10 am to register, get a great spot and spend some time with the dogs. Bring a yoga mat or towel and invite everyone who is in the market for a new furry friend. The cost of the class is donation based and all funds raised will go to the Mdzananda Animal Clinic.
