DOGA: Yoga for Dogs (and their Humans)

Dogs are natural yogis. They stretch, twist, have perfected downward facing dog pose, and excel at sivasana. But their practice benefits from a little help from their human. Here are just a few of the ways Doga can help:

  • Doga allows the human and canine undisturbed bonding time.
  • Dogs receive a full body massage, which relaxes them (and sometimes allows the human to discover ticks, growths and other issues)
  • Dogs and humans both benefit from stretching and stress relief
  • Dogs get mental stimulation through obedience cues

Still not convinced?  Read more about Doga here.

Join us on Saturday October 31 for a special benefit class with your well-behaved canine companion. This 45-minute class will be held outside on 9th Street, in front of the studio. Bring a mat. All dogs must be leashed and aggressive dogs will be asked to leave. (In case of inclement weather, the class will be re-scheduled for later in the month).

$20 donation. Funds raised will go to Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL) and Akita Rescue Mid-Atlantic (Armac).

Treats will be provided by Fido and Kitty’s World. Immediately following the Doga class, Fido and Kitty will be hosting a Halloween Costume Contest for our dogs. Stay tuned for more info!

Date: Saturday, October 31, 2 pm
4203 9th St, NW

Teachers: Julie Eisenberg and Carli Toliver
