Inside a "Dog Yoga" class

Love yoga but don’t want to leave your pup at home? Dog Yoga (or “Doga”) encourages you to bring your dog to class.

It was invented by yoga teacher Mahny Djahanguiri in 2012.

“Eventually, they absorb your calm,” she told Business Insider UK. “It’s so beautiful when it synchronises and the dog sits on the mat, or comes to you because you’re calm.”

“That’s when you can reach out and start doing poses together.”

Having a dog is not necessary at Doga. You can borrow somebody else’s pet while doing your routine.

Classes are run by in London, who also the people behind Beer Yoga.
