Dogs have always been natural yogis. In fact, many of the movements and positions that dogs do can inspire and assist humans in their own yoga practice. Now, six master dogis reveal the secrets of doga. Doga presents the major asanas of the practice, from the relaxing Happy Puppy to the restorative Pup's Pose. Each pose is shown by one of the dogis, with accompanying text that explains how people can adapt these positions to their own practice. Also included are breathing techniques such as the Breath of Fire, or Pant, and tips on practicing with your own dogi.
Jennifer Brilliant teaches yoga at New York City's famed OM Yoga. She regularly studies with dogis to enhance her own practice.
William Berloni is an animal consultant whose canine clients work regularly in Broadway shows.
