Picture This: 3rd Annual Doga in the Park

For Some, the Path to Inner Peace Involves Puppies… Lots and Lots of Puppies

We were out and about early on Saturday morning for a little Doga in the park. That’s right – Doga. It’s basically just yoga outdoors, in the sun and fresh air, near a lake. Only it was about a million times better because there were dogs. Yep – all kinds of dogs. For a few hours, we stretched and posed alongside lil’ pups, big pups, tired and energetic pups. And now we’re convinced that there’s simply no better way to start your weekend.

The 3rd Annual Doga in the Park presented by Sprint for Service Dogs took place at Hillside Park in South Abington Twp. Yoga instruction for the event was provided by Clark Summit’s Jaya Yoga. Participants and their pups spread out on mats all over the spacious, lakeside greenery. And most of the dogs did their best to keep a safe social distance. Though some just couldn’t help themselves.

Event organizers offered light refreshments. And the pups helped themselves to an adorable doggie treat table. Proceeds from Doga in the Park helped raise funds to provide medical service dogs to veterans and first responders. The event was open to all – no dog required.

In between our awkward downward dogs and wobbly tree poses, we also snapped some great pics. Take a look.
