Remember goat yoga? Remember how much you wanted to take a yoga class with goats? Well, New Jersey has one better for you. How about puppy yoga.

It’s just like goat yoga, but with dogs.

But beware, you might fall in love with one of these adorable dogs, and you’ll end up taking it home with you. And that’s actually encouraged since the dogs all come from an animal group waiting to be rescued.

Doggy Noses and Yoga Poses is a fundraising organization that raises money for animal rescue groups by holding yoga classes and events throughout New Jersey.

The money you spend for each class, plus donations, goes towards the rescue group that the participating dogs are from.

The dogs roam around as you take your yoga class so you can either concentrate and master those backbends or you can have a cuddle session with the pup of your choice.

If you're a college student, they have special classes for you.

As stated on one of the DNYP Instagram posts, with an increase in mental health concerns among students, their “Classes on Campus” program focuses on health benefits by practicing yoga and the mental aspect by playing with dogs to create a relaxed space.

Even if you’re not a pro-yogi (yes, that’s really a thing), you can still attend these events and possibly walk home with a new family member.

Here is a list of upcoming classes and events in New Jersey hosted by Doggy Noses and Yoga Poses:
