"Jillie and I had a super sweet private session with Nicole from Austin Doga, LLC. I learned how to massage, yoga, and meditate with my senior pup. It was a beautiful shared experience that I will always remember and treasure."
Lynn, Psychologist, yogi & doga student
WHO DOES THE YOGA? ME OR MY DOG?
You do yoga while your dog hangs out, and soaks up the zen and gentle massage.
I'VE NEVER DONE YOGA BEFORE, IS THAT OKAY?
Yes! Austin Doga is beginner friendly.
Please inform Austin Doga, LLC of any injuries or medical conditions you have.
Poses will be modified just for your needs.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR MY DOGA SESSION?
These are helpful to have, but not necessary:
A yoga mat and blanket for yourself
A blanket, bed, or towel for your dog
Comfortable clothes, think elastic waistbands and dog hair, don't care
WILL DOGA HELP MY DOG'S PROBLEM BEHAVIOR, INJURY, OR MEDICAL CONDITION?
Nope. Please consult a professional dog trainer or dog behaviorist for any training or behavior issues.
Make sure your dog is getting his needs met through professional training, food puzzles, and plenty of exercise and mental stimulation (maybe through agility or nose work classes). Please see a veterinarian or canine medical specialist for any injuries and medical conditions. Doga is not a substitute for these services and activities.
WHY DON'T YOU OFFER IN-PERSON PUBLIC GROUP DOGA CLASSES?
Group goat yoga classes are all the rage! So why don't you offer more group doga classes? Practicing yoga with a class full of adult dogs who don't know each other is much trickier compared to yoga with a flock of little goats who belong together. Dogs who don't know each other could be fearful or snarky with each other. Practicing yoga while keeping an eye on your dog's behavior, directs your attention outward versus inward where you can find your zen.
