Puppy yoga classes are not basic yoga classes but you will experience all of the benefits of puppy yoga as well as all the benefits of regular yoga. In these classes, the puppies will go from one mat to another, fight with each other and jump on you. If they are not involved in performing yoga poses, the puppies will run around the room and create a fun atmosphere.
