We all know how good yoga is for us…but did you know it can also benefit your dog? Doga (or “dog yoga”) is the practice of partner yoga for you and your dog. At East Yoga in New York, Kari Harendorf helped pioneer this hybrid practice. Kari’s doga sessions have been featured in articles in TimeOut New York , The New York Post, and The New York Times.
Doga is all about bonding with your pet and giving the dog 45 minutes of undivided attention and praise from their favorite person in the world. The dogs do sun salutations and you’ll learn specific massage techniques to calm your dog and aid both circulation and digestion processes. And don’t worry: You’ll also get a workout, using your dog to assist you in traditional and modified poses.
Check out Kari and Charlie in their latest TV appearance! The Today showed filmed a doga class in the East Yoga studio.
