Doga classes are typically Thursday evenings at 6:30pm. The following Fall 2013 dates are confirmed: September 19, October 10, and October 24.
Doga is yoga with your dog, but no experience (or being able to put your legs behind your head) required for either of you. Doga is simply a great, relaxing bonding experience with your four-legged soul mate. Our instructor, Darla Buckner, has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and is a Registered Yoga Teacher with 200 hours of training. Dogs and Yoga are her passion and now she has combined the two!
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!

Namaste and bow wow.
