Doga gives pet owners, dogs new way to de-stress and connect

Posted: Updated:
LONDON -

There's new meaning to the term downward dog.  More and more yoga lovers are sharing their mats with their pooch in a new practice called “Doga.”

Panting exercises in this yoga class in London are taken to a whole new level.  It's Doga- a yoga class for dog lovers and their best friend.

Instructor Mahny Djahanguiri says the mix of massage, poses and chanting promotes a healthy life and can reduce anxiety for both owners and their dogs.

“They're getting their yoga, their human yoga, while the dog feeds off their calm,” said Djahanguiri.

Dogs can either take part in the stretching or act as a weight.

Dog behaviorist Niki Roe says the class can help tame problematic pets.  “For your dog to listen to you you need to be calm- and this is the best way to be calm with your dog,” said Roe.
