To sign up for a class or to learn more, contact the office at (512) 894-7387.

AND we also have more Doga with Darla! Thursday, May 30, 2013 at 6:30pm 
Only $22 for the 2 of you! (You and your dog). Register and learn more by calling the office at 512-894-7387. Stay N Play will provide yoga mats, you just need to bring yourself and your dog. Did you know that the word "yoga" actually means "to yoke" or "union" in Sanskrit. So practicing yoga with your dog is more about bonding and being together as one. However, there are many other benefits, like flexibility for both you and your pet. It's also a perfect opportunity to touch your pet. Moving your hands on them and doing a basic health check. Or just allowing them to get used to having their paws touched. Yoga is about breathing, too. So just lying with your dog and breathing together is truly relaxing for both of you. Thank goodness, it's not about either of you ending up standing on your head!
