Yoga With Your Dog

If you’ve set some new fitness goals for the new year, why not get your pooch in on the action?  Yoga classes are popping up across the country for pet owners and their very own “downward dogs,” but you can practice some easy poses at home to get your chi flowing!

Happy Puppy
Lying on your back with knees bent and legs in the air, grab the outside of your feet and put your heals together. Place your dog on the bottom of your feet on his or her belly. Then, move your legs over your face like the dog is flying, and end with your knees bent and your dog on your chest.

The happy puppy pose benefits you by opening up the legs and massaging the spine against the floor. This pose benefits your dog by helping with digestion and blood flow — plus, the dog gets to fly!
