It’s official. Yoga has gone to the dogs – quite literally! A new exercise trend stretching across North America, called doga (that’s right, dogs and yoga), is encouraging people to bring along their canine pals when they hit the studio for some downward dog relaxation. The practice is believed to have originated in Manhattan about 7 years ago, with the intent of nurturing the bond between dog and owner. As well, doga is meant to help keep bodies – human and furry alike – lean and limber, while maintaining positive mental energies.
