Involving your dog in yoga sessions can help you develop your yoga practice, as well as being an entertaining and fun way to bond with your pet. Doga provides a mindful connection with your dog as you mimic your pet's breathing patterns and have to stay controlled throughout the pose to ensure your pet's comfort. As an activity it de-stresses your dog and creates a wonderful sharing and nurturing experience. Classic yoga postures such as the Warrior Lunge and the Downward-Facing Dog are adapted so that your pet can participate. Full-colour photographs alongside practical step-by-step guides show clearly how to do each of the poses in this fun and unique take on yoga.
Welcome to the world of Doga, where your best friend can help you get more from your yoga sessions.
