Doga: Do Yoga with your Dog

Picture 10 A recent New York Times article, Bonding With Their Downward-Facing Humans, states that the practice of doga is increasing in popularity. The DogaDog webiste defines doga is defined as "yoga for you and your dog." While some feel that the doga detracts from the serious practice of yoga others think that dogs "are a natural match for yoga’s emphasis on union and connection with other beings."

There is no official certification program for doga instructors so finding a qualified instructor may be challenging. There have been a few books written on the subject. For example, Doga: Yoga for Dogs covers the major asanas (postures) from the Downward-Facing Dog to the relaxing Happy Puppy and restorative Pup's Pose. Each stretch is demonstrated by one of the dogis, with accompanying text to help people adapt positions to their own practice. Also included are breathing techniques such as the hot breath, or pant, and tips on practicing with your own dogi.

If you have a cat rather than a dog, don't feel completely left out. Take a look at Cat Yoga: Fitness and Flexibility for the Modern Feline . The author claims that the practice of yoga will help your cat feel more energetic -- that's something my cat could certainly use.

Greetings! I am trying to stage a benefit, "Seattle Remembers Sammy"
to console bereft Lisa McKibben and also to heighten awareness of this
hidden hazard. I held a similar function for shock victim, Celia
Sing,to commemorate her beloved Husky's electrocution (Please see The
New York Times piece in StreetZaps News). I hope you may interested in
supporting this saddened dog walker and helping to preclude more
potential injuries and fatalities as Seattle vaunts a progressive,
caring character and is a world exemplar.

Would you be interested in participating or donating? Please advise.

Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing from you. Stay safe!

In appreciation and with best regards,
