Puppy Yoga

College students are hounded by stress, and everyone knows that spending time with pooches and practicing yoga are good ways to relax. So, four seniors in Dr. Kathleen Swanik’s Health Sciences class doggedly pursued their dream of combining the two activities into one super stress-relief experience – puppy yoga.

On February 23, thirty lucky students exercised while six canine celebrities, provided by Rags 2 Riches Animal Rescue in Garnet Valley, scurried from one student to the next, begging for attention, licking faces, and even falling asleep in a few laps.
