Puppy yoga classes involve having puppies roaming from one mat to the next, leaping on participants, and tussling with other puppies as you try out different yoga poses. Often pups are incorporated into some of the yoga poses or they happily roam free throughout class. More importantly, you don’t have to own a puppy. We provide them!Detailed description:
A typical puppy yoga class will have approximately 8-10 puppies with around 15 participants and the puppies can range from 8-14 weeks old. Puppy yoga classes involve having puppies roaming from one mat to the next, leaping on participants, and tussling with other puppies as you try out different yoga poses. Often pups are incorporated into some of the yoga poses or they happily roam free throughout class. All puppies are borrowed from a local breeder and we find the breeders from websites such as Kennel Club or Pets4Homes. On some occasions, Puppy Yoga gives the puppies an opportunity to be adopted, if they haven’t already found their forever home. The puppies get the chance to be around other people (not just their breeder) which enhances their socialisation. In the first 3 months of a puppies life it is very important to expose your puppies to different people, new environments, sounds and smells. Puppy yoga is a safe and fun space that aids with our puppies socialisation. When you cuddle a puppy, it has psychological benefits, increasing the happy hormones: oxytocin and serotonin to the brain and lowering cortisol levels (the negative hormone) similar to when you embrace a new-born baby for the first time. This in turn with the yoga, will leave you feeling physically , mentally and emotional balanced and fulfilled. More importantly, you don’t have to own a puppy. We provide them!
Hi, I'm Helen. I'm a certified yoga teacher, practising several disciplines of yoga practices and have been a puppy yoga teacher for over a year. I have been using holistic and alternative techniques for myself, children and dogs for several years since being diagnosed with cancer in 2017.
From my experience, I have recognised the importance of early socialisation for puppies and the benefit of interacting with many different types of people. Our customers and the puppies we use are of paramount importance.
Our events our based at my yoga studio in Elephant & Castle, London (zone 1). We are available to visit a venue of your choice for private events.

Hello and Welcome to my Puppy yoga/cuddle classes!
Please note, if you are booking a kids ticket, an adult must be present to supervise and purchase an adult ticket. This is due to health and safety of the puppies and the children.
