Happy New Year! It is January and time to find a fun workout you can do with your dog.
Here is everything you will need to know about the event. Only well-socialized dogs with updated shots will be allowed for the Doga Class. The owner should have some yoga experience, beginners are welcome. Unfortunately, as this event is in a bar, all people must be 21 years old or older. (Puppies must have all the shots and get on well with other dogs. So about 4 months old +)

Bonding With Your Dog Through Yoga
Exercise is also a fantastic opportunity to bond with your dog. Annie Appleby, a yoga expert with 25 years’ experience, started offering doga (dog yoga) classes from her San Francisco Bay Area yoga practice, YogaForce, 10 years ago. In dog yoga, humans incorporate their dogs into classic yoga poses. For instance, holding them as a weight during a side bend. Or, balancing the dog on their leg in Warrior Two pose.
Doga can be just as calming for dogs as yoga is for humans. Even the most hyperactive dogs end up very chilled out by the end of the class. Appleby also notes that both dogs and humans are closely engaged throughout classes, often looking into each other’s eyes.
“They really benefit from eye contact, the dogs,” Appleby says. “In our classes, it’s one hour of complete and utter communication with your dog the whole time. And the dogs like that a lot.”
