Dog Yoga (aka Doga) is Totally a Thing

Move over hot yoga, doga is the next big thing. Yes, you can actually do yoga with your dog. Doga is all about posing, stretching, and being zen AF with your puppy pal.

Yoga is obviously great for things like strength and flexibility, but doga takes it to a whole new level. Besides helping with circulation and breathing, doga can also help strengthen the connection between you and your BFFF (best furry friend forever). It’s a great way to hang out, relax, and even help your hyperactive dog chill.

Big dog? Small dog? Doesn’t matter. Doga is all about finding what works for you and getting some quality time with your pup. Even if your dog isn’t super interested in the poses, just letting them walk around as you get your yoga on can be beneficial for you both.

Doga classes have been popping up everywhere from Northern California to London. But if you can’t find a class in your area, don’t stress. You can easily do doga at home, too. For more info on DIY doga, check out this infographic.

If you’re looking for a fun, new way to spend time with your furry friend, break out your best downward facing dog and let the relaxation begin.
