The Bourse Food Hall and Morris Animal Refuge to host two Doggy Yoga classes In celebration of National Yoga Month  1

In celebration of National Yoga Month this September, The Bourse Food Hall, Old City’s artisan food hall on Independence Mall, is partnering with Morris Animal Refuge, America’s first animal shelter, for two instructed yoga classes on the food hall’s fifth street patio on Sunday, September 12, featuring adorable and adoptable dogs, with all proceeds benefitting Morris Animal Refuge.

Dog-loving yogis are invited to The Bourse Food Hall’s patio on September 12, for an hour-long yoga class featuring adoptable dogs from Morris Animal Refuge. The first class will take place from 11 am – 12 pm, followed by a second class from 12:30-1:30 pm. Each class is $25, with all proceeds benefitting Morris Animal Refuge. Tickets can be purchased here. Classes will be capped at 25 people.

“We’re putting the “dog” in “downward dog” this September with a little help from our friends at Morris Animal Refuge,” saidChristina Trinh, The Bourse Food Hall General Manager.“We’re looking forward to celebrating National Yoga Month with these two classes, all while supporting America’s first animal shelter, and hopefully finding permanent homes for some good boys and girls.”

Volunteers from Morris Animal Refuge will be on site selling a variety of merchandise benefiting rescue animals and the shelter. After each class, attendees are welcome to enjoy light-fare and lunch inside the food hall from tenants such as Menagerie Coffee, Freebyrd Chicken, Scoop DeVille, and more. Yogis are also invited to check out Art Star’s final pop-up market on The Bourse’s patio from 11 am – 3 pm featuring wares, jewelry, crafts and more from local vendors.

The Bourse is conveniently located in Old City, just off of the Market-Frankford subway line. For those driving, The Bourse parking garage is located on fourth street.
