Barking Buddha Doga Tip of the Week

Puppy Child's Pose.
This pose brings your heart close to your dog, both physically and metaphorically. Take a few deep breathes in Puppy Child's pose and open up to the healing qualities of the relationship between you and your dogi. Notice your dog's breathing, energy and beating heart. Focus on the beautiful simplicity of these things and relax.

You are definitely onto something here. Whenever I take out my yoga mat and stretch out, my doggie can't wait to lie down next to me and get involved. My only question is what do you do in your classes with a dog (and there's always one) that barks incessantly at the other dogs? Not exactly relaxing.

Hi Anon,
There's actually a chapter in my book about my experiences with "barking buddhas" in class. In doesn't happen as frequently as one might think...and since most of my classes take place in dog facilities there is often background noise anyway. I'm always reminding students that it's doga, not yoga it's a little more organic and can be a little louder as well :)
Thanks for your comment!
