Doga (Dog Yoga)
A.K.A. "Dog Yoga" or "Ruff Yoga". I saw this book in the newsagent today and lost it.
1. I hope they don't want the dog to read it. I have enough trouble getting them to say "woof"
2. Getting a dog to "sit", "stay" and "don't chew the furniture" can take years in dog training school. The mind boggles at a dog trying to learn "Salute to the Sun" in a short period of time.
3. Dogs would be good at the "Downward Dog Pose", I'll give them that.
4. Is the yoga actually taught by dogs? If so, THEN I'm impressed.
5. Possible dog poses to try:
"Digging the roses out of the garden" pose
"Smell another dog's behind" pose
"Go mad at the doorbell" pose
"Bark at nothing in particular for 30 minutes" exercise
The strange and rather challenging "Leg humping" pose
"Tap dance across tiles and slide into a bicycle and a bunch of toys" pose
According to the author, dogs are already born yoga masters. Well, good. Perhaps they can teach me. The book is, of course a little tongue in cheek (or tongue flapping out the car window, depending on your species) and combines humour and yoga and er... well, dogs.
Apparently dogs have a natural "tranquility" - yeah. Tell that to the mailman.
Yes, dogs can do a lot of things, but can they do this?
Hmm. I don't think so.
"Dogs are natural yoga masters" eh?
Well... some humans can naturally do yoga. At least I think that's what this guy is doing.
