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

But what IS doga? Your dog won’t be expected to do yoga poses on their own–you’ll be there to help! You and your pooch will work together to stretch and relax. You’ll work with your pup to give them the best doga experience possible. And if they’re super-well-behaved, you may get a few downward-facing dogs in yourself!
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 no offense, but socially-challenged or aggressive dogs will be asked to leave. (In case of inclement weather, the class will be re-scheduled for later in the month).
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
Teachers: Julie Eisenberg and Carli Toliver
