The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Pose & Paws is back in 2015 with more outdoor yoga events in Yoyogi Park! It's time for more upward dog pose stretches, eagle pose balancing and flying in crow pose. It will be a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, make new friends and help some animals!

Over the last two years, we have hosted 10 outdoor yoga classes in Yoyogi park. In total, over ¥676,500 in donations has been raised for Animal Friends Japan, an animal rescue center in Niigata that has been at the forefront of animal rescues in and around the Fukushima area since the Great Tohoku Earthquake in March 2011.

This year, we will be hosting 6 events. Each event will be two hours long with all donations again going to Animal Friends Japan.

All levels or yoga and family members are welcome. Pets are especially welcome!

All events will be held in English. Japanese translation will be provided.
