SFU Recreation is bringing back Bunny Yoga on Tuesday, Oct. 24, in the Lorne Davies Complex (Burnaby campus). There will be two Hatha yoga classes with bunny socialization. The bunnies are brought by the Small Animal Rescue Society of B.C. (SARSBC).

Participants of all levels can purchase tickets in advance for $10, with proceeds going to Small Animal Rescue. SFU Recreation has run similar Bunny Yoga events in the past, raising more than $1,000 for SARSBC. 

The yoga bunnies are currently in foster care and up for adoption. Class participants can adopt or mingle with them afterwards. Yoga and animal companionship are known to be great stress relievers.

What: Bunny Yoga

When: Tuesday, Oct. 24, sessions at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Where: VIP room, Lorne Davies Complex, Burnaby campus
