Groups, dogs stretch to break world yoga record

San Diego Humane Society and Leash Your Fitness teamed up Jan. 25 to host a special dog-friendly yoga event at the Carmel Valley Recreation Center. More than 250 people and their canines were expected to participate in this event, which would break the Guinness World Record for the most people and dogs doing yoga together in one place.

Dawn Celapino of Leash Your Fitness led the yoga class. “Both Leash Your Fitness and San Diego Humane Society promote the importance of the human-animal bond,” she said. “So we wanted to host this special community event together to show people that the bond you have with your dog can be amplified when you include them in your fitness related activities.”
