As part of the 2014 Sunset Yoga for Charity, Rebecca Washburn will be teaching a yoga class to benefit the nonprofit adoption guarantee animal shelter, The Haven. The class will be at 6:30 p.m. August 8th. Bring a mat and a donation to the bluff above and to the right of the Fairhope Pier.  
 
Sunset Yoga classes are beginner friendly and donation based. Each teacher picks a charity. Rebecca Washburn chose The Haven because, “Animals have a special place in my heart.” Like many of us, she may not know how or be able to help a needy animal. But she does know who can help. “The work that The Haven does gives {needy animals} the opportunity to thrive, and I want to support that.”
