You can do yoga with wolves in the Adirondacks.
You may have heard of goat yoga, dog yoga and even farm yoga.
But in the Adirondacks, there’s yoga with wolves.
The animals can’t get too curious.
Fences separate them from the class at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge.
The nonprofit is what inspired Wenn to start the weekly class.
“I love animals and I love this place,” she said.
The refuge rehabilitates Adirondack wildlife in the middle of the woods.
Wenn said the class is supposed to be a powerful, peaceful experience.
“I mean if you look into the eyes of a wolf, it’s … (a) special, humbling, wild look and everybody feels that,” Wenn said.
She wants everybody in class to feel, touch and enjoy the surroundings.
“We’re right in the dirt, right in the soil and right next to the wolves,” Wenn said.
The wolves are a constant theme in the class.
Instead of downward dog, “It’s down wolf or up wolf,” Wenn said smiling.
That’s not all.
“You know how in yoga you do the ‘om’? Well, here we howl,” Wenn said with a laugh.
If you want to try yoga with the wolves, classes are from 6-8 p.m. every Wednesday at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge.
Admission is $10. Half of the proceeds go to the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge.
