As the weather gets colder and the leaves change color, life in November seems to dissolve into an array of candy corn, pumpkin pie, and turkey. Keep your head above the fray, whether you’re cycling your calories away, hitting downward dogs in the park, or running through downtown. Lace up your sneakers and get moving so that you can eat all the candy corn you want. Or rolls. Or sweet potato casserole. Pick your poison; we don’t judge here.
Bring your four-legged best friend to the Aaron Family Jewish Community Center on Nov. 20 for dog yoga. Perfect your downward dog, alongside your pup, from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Group Fitness Studio. Inspired by the book Doga: Yoga for Dogs and led by professional yoga instructor Debbi Levy, dog yoga is an opportunity for humans to interact with their canine companions while tapping into the animal’s natural yoga tendencies including the ability to “be in the moment” and, of course, inherent flexibility. Yoga mats and towels will be provided. Also, the SPCA will be on site from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. helping find forever homes for dogs in need.
