Doggy Yoga Event
Since August, I’ve been working on a “Doggy Yoga and Yappy Hour” charity event with Mel, of headstandsandheels.com (@headstandsandheels on Instagram) on behalf of the NoMo SoHo. I had met Mel at another event earlier in the summer, and when I started working at NoMo, heard that she wanted to host a charity yoga event along with her friend and fellow yogi Alex (@wellnesswithalexandra) to benefit an animal rescue organization and was looking for a place to host the event. Since NoMo is a dog-friendly hotel, I offered to ask my management if they were interesting in donating a space for the class as a sponsor, and we started to make this dream a reality!
Not only was I the photographer for the event, but I also put together a little booklet for the event, with information on NoMo, Social Tees Animal Rescue (the organization that this event was benefiting), as well as a couple recipes by NoMo Kitchen’s executive chef, Jesse Olson. As the a chef and owner of two brussels griffon pups, Jesse regularly makes healthy recipes for the dogs and agreed to share some of them with the guests attending the event.
Although the yoga class itself wasn’t the most productive, it seemed like everyone had a wonderful time! Check out some of the photos below!
