Dogs help us open our hearts to the possibilities of relationships that we may have difficulty learning or accepting from other humans. Something about that connection with our dog allows us to draw out the qualities in ourself that we may otherwise have difficulty connecting with: unconditional love, letting go, being present, to name a few.

Our yoga practice teaches us about connection to ourself so that we can bring that connection beyond our yoga mats into our daily life.
But what if we bring our dogs onto our mats with us? We can let their natural healing abilities encourage our ability to connect by first connecting with them, approaching the desire to connect in a new way. For some this is a more helpful way or just a more fun way. A yoga class should be a practice that encourages this kind of transformation no matter what style someone uses to get there.
