Dog Week

It was a busy dog week. We did a demo at a dog fair, I did dog massage at a Starbucks event and then we went to a book signing at The W Hotel for a dog book that just came out. Not mine...yet! So I've been talking about Yoga With Your Dog ALOT this week. But I guess I'm not done talking about it yet because I feel the urge to share about what dog yoga is. Here's the thing...other than the health benefits of yoga, it's really about allowing yourself to take the time to just be and breathe. When this happens we are able to still the mind so that we can see with clarity what is really important. When we bring our dogs into our practice we are doing all those things and more. Having our dogs beside us on the yoga mat lets us experience what true connection and unconditional love really is. We begin to experience not only what it feels like to connect with our true, beautiful selves, but what it's like to take that connection and really feel it for another being. When this happens, we can experience a deeper bond with our dogs. Then we are able to take that experience with us into our daily lives and hopefully begin to feel a deeper connection to all living things. There you have it...Yoga With our Dog, short version.
