Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, April 09, 2021


We’ve already seen hockey-training yoga, facial-exercising yoga, and Olympic-level competitive yoga.

So given that context, doga, or tag-team yoga with your pooch, isn’t really all that far-fetched (yes, pun intended).

Appropriate or not, this is how it works: Doga combines massage and meditation with gentle stretching for dogs and their human partners. In chaturanga, dogs sit with their front paws in the air while their human partners provide support. In an “upward-paw pose,” or sun salutation, owners lift dogs onto their hind legs. In a resting pose, the person reclines, with legs slightly bent over the dog’s torso, bolster-style, to relieve pressure on the spine.

Actually, I always thought that a dog’s version of the ideal mind-body state was achieved through their ability to lick themselves. Come to think of it, that’s largely what human yoga is trying to emulate…
