Vinyasa Yoga Donation Class

March Charity Donation Class at Southern Om to Benefit PAALS (Palmetto Assisted Animal Life Services)

Friday, March 8 – 6:45 p.m.

 Join SO instructor Jac Cheboratis for a fun, upbeat flow class and all proceeds will benefit PAALS (Palmetto Assisted Animal Life Services). SO student Stephanie Terry has personally been touched by PAALS, as she has enlisted the help of a service dog to help her at work providing therapy.

PAALS trains animals to assist people with varying abilities to live more independent and enriched lives by providing them with assistance dogs. Some of their specially trained canines are taught to turn lights on and off, tug open doors, pick up dropped items and alert for help to assist individuals in wheelchairs. Other dogs go on to assist children with autism and soldiers with PTSD to accomplish therapeutic and real life goals. These dogs are primarily placed in and around South Carolina. For more information, please visit www.paals.org.
