Upon first reading and watching the videos about dog yoga or doga, I thought it seemed somewhat impossible. However, being a dog lover and and loving yoga I thought it could be worth checking into.
WHAT IS DOGA?
Doga is a partner yoga class with your dog. It mixes the love of your animal with calming and effective poses.
“Like yoga, doga balances, harmonizes, purifies and transcends the body and mind of the practitioner,” says doga teacher Madhavi Bhatia. “What makes doga unique is the practice and benefits that create a harmony and synchronization of energy flow between the owner and dog (source).”
DOGA adds incentive for you to workout. If you watch the video below you’ll notice that doing the yoga with your dog seems to actually be more entertaining. For people who are “givers” but neglect to exercise themselves it gives them a reason to workout.
