If you and your best four-legged friend are looking for something fun to do October 13, look no further… the Tales and Ales festival in Palo Alto has it all. And while you’re there, join us for some Doga! No experience (or mat) needed, just come on out and join us at Mitchell Park. (Pawed participants will be on leashes at all time – nonretractable preferred.)
If you’ve not heard of Doga before, here is a very sweet video with an explanation from a teacher who popularized the term at her studio. And our friends at Leash Your Fitness working with the San Diego Humane Society recently set the world record for the worlds largest Doga class. (265 – read more about it here.)
The thirty-minute class will start with standing stretches, some lunges, some twists and some balance poses. Then we’ll sit down and deepen our breath, take some leg stretches and do a little bit of core work. We’ll do a bit of arm work, then lie on our back for some twisting and relaxing. Finally, we finish the class with some dog massage. Both you and your pet will feel energized and relaxed.
