Doga Is Yoga With Your Dog

Would You Do Yoga With Your Dog?

When I first heard about doga classes (yoga with your dog), I thought it was too bizarre to catch on, but it seems that classes are cropping up all over the place. Some people feel that it's a slap in the face to this ancient tradition, while others believe doga makes perfect sense since it coincides with yogic principles that encourage living in harmony with all living beings. Classes aren't just about doing Downward Facing Dog while your dog sleeps on your mat. You actually assist your dog to help him or her do yoga poses and gentle stretches. Doga also incorporates doggie massage and meditation.

I'm all for anything that encourages humans and animals to exercise and be healthy, but a line may have been crossed here. Tell me, is doga laughable or something you'd lap up?
