EVENT: Do the Downward Dog with Doga in London

doga - yoga for dogs in London

Do the downward dog

If the stress  of city life has been getting you down lately (who doesn’t love agro commuters and deranged cab drivers?), why not try slipping into a relaxing state of zen, while a familiar hot breath pants in your face? No it’s not creepy yoga (we hope that’s not a thing?) it’s Doga, and it’s coming to London!

If you haven’t heard about it already, Doga is a form of yoga that is meant to be a relaxing, bonding experience for both dog and owner. Does it seem slight mad and logistically challenging? Yes it does, and that’s why we’re interested!

Set to take place on Monday 13th October at Old Street, this intimate 60 minute session will be taken under the expert direction of Europe’s first Doga instructor and founder of Doga Mahny, Mahny Djahanguiri.

Mahny will take owners through the traditional Yoga asanas, postures and breathing practices, designed to reduce stress and anxiety for both human and hound.

Bring your own mat to have go yourself and try out key Doga moves with your pooch, or feel free to leave your dog at home and observe Mahny and her dog Robbie perform a series of live demonstrations.

There will also be an audience Q&A that will give you a chance to find out how best to practice Doga at home, and finally, witness the world’s first Doga Trance Dance performance with Robbie the Maltese Terrier (we have no idea what this is but it can only be good)!

Have you tried Doga? Are you game?

Doga with Mahny is on Monday the 13th October at either 6pm or 7.30pm – Unit 2, Old Street Station, London, EC1Y 1BE. Tickets are £8.00 from eventbrite.co.uk
