Sluff is a Tibetan Terrier who comes on just about every yoga adventure (except Paddleboard Yoga in the Crater). She is hypoallergenic, does not shed, and always has a positive attitude. She will keep you moving out on the trails with a yip if you dillydally for too long. Her favorite things about working for PCYA are stick chasing and pushing her nose through the snow. Her daily yoga routine involves up dog, down dog, and a vigorous full-body shake. She would love to meet your best friend, so talk to us about bringing your pup along on your adventure.
