    Nearly 300 people and dogs broke a record in San Diego for the world’s largest doggie yoga class on Sunday.

    On Sunday, 265 people and pups from around the community came together at the Carmel Valley Recreation Center to set the record.

    The San Diego Humane Society and Leash Your Fitness organized the event and the Humane Society had adoptable dogs on hand to lend a paw to those in need.

    Dawn Celapino of Leash Your Fitness led the yoga class.

    “So we wanted to host this special community event together to show people that the bond you have with your dog can be amplified when you include them in your fitness related activities,” Celapino said in a press release. “Working out together is easy, fun and yields a multitude of health benefits for both you and your beloved pup.”

    The class broke the Guinness World Record for the most people and dogs doing yoga together in one place.
