"Doga" with Belmont Yoga


Join us in Stowe Park at 12:00 pm as we partner with the City of Belmont's Howl-O-Ween event to offer Doga (Yoga with your Dog!). This will be an accessible flow and stretch class for all levels; no yoga experience required. This event will be held in the covered pavilion - rain or shine!

Bring your own yoga mat, as these are not provided. Dogs are required to be on a short static leash (max 5 ft - no retractable leashes), and must be secured to you at all times during the class to ensure the safety of all students and dogs. While all dogs are welcomed, please ensure your dog will be comfortable in the presence of other people and dogs without added stress.

All proceeds from this event will go directly to Gaston County Animal Care & Enforcement to ensure the welfare and safety of our local animals. Please register in advance (click the icon below) to secure your spot!

Thank you to our event sponsors!
