Puppy Yoga Aims To Relieve Stress Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

SALEM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Amid the coronavirus pandemic, some people came out to relieve stress with puppy yoga at the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem over the weekend.

About 20 people stretched and breathed at the event as puppies moved around the room.

"Puppies are so playful by nature so that when they see us doing different poses, they're naturally going to be curious and see what we're doing. And they're going to want to come over, and sniff, and give kisses, and play, and all that," yoga instructor Fallon O'Connor said.

Some people said that given the current headlines, the puppies were just what they needed.

"With everything going around, a little stress relief sounded like fun," one participant said.
