Why do yoga on your own when you can do it with your favourite pet? Dog yoga or Doga is your answer! Participants are encouraged to bring their dogs to yoga class. This latest fitness trend is designed to be a relaxing bonding experience for you and your pet. Invented by Mahny Djhanguiri in 2012, this trend has quickly spread and made its way onto people’s radars. If you are in London, book a session for you and your doggy for this magical experience! Here’s everything you need to know about yoga with dogs!
Book a session
Book a session with the creator of this fitness trend, Mahny, and bring your pet along for this bonding yoga class. Designed for you to achieve a connection with your pet by adhering to their breathing and maintaining poses for their comfort, this is the ultimate bonding experience.
Djhanguiri reveals that “what I love is when everyone starts to drop their energy and meaning their breathing… half way through you just feel like you’re calming down, the room calms down, and the dogs start coming to you and when that happens, magic happens, and that’s Doga. It’s that unleashed invitation to bond with nature.”
This unique style of yoga is great for relieving stress and anxiety by working on the natural symbiotic relationship between you and your dog. Bringing your dog to one of these yoga sessions will also be amazingly beneficial for their health and improves their life expectancy. Working on the same principles as mummy and baby yoga, doga is designed to release oxytocin in both the human and canine brain in order to experience an organic and symbiotic way to bond. A session here will leave both you and your pet relaxed and as one afterward
Book one of these sessions on Mahny Djhanguiri’s website or on Funzing.
