what is it? Yoga… but with your dog. how does it work? Like a normal yoga class but, if they’re up for it, you can get your dog involved – for example, lifting them overhead (if they’re light!) in standing stretches or leaning over them in forward folds. otherwise they can just pad around, soaking up the chilled atmosphere. what are the benefits? You get the perks of yoga, such as improved flexibility and relaxation. it’s claimed that your pooch will find it calming too. where do i sign up? Yoga teacher mahny Djahanguiri currently runs doga classes in London (dogamahny.co.uk,
£22.50 per session), with the hope of rolling out nationwide. meanwhile, you can practise at home with her book Doga: Yoga For You And Your Dog (£12.99, Hamlyn), which features step-by-step instructions.
