|Cooling Down with the Dogs|
The Reclining Queen pose allows you to gently stretch your hips and open your chest as you wrap up your Yoga workout. To include your dog, simply call him to you and ask him to remain by your side, laying or sitting, as your talk to him or repeat a mantra.
Jess and Nikki B. found an interesting way to combine their bodies, so much so that Nikki B. disappears at the end. Enjoy this brief, educational video and be sure to leave a comment. We're dialing it down now. Watch for our last pose next week, but don't worry, Doga will not be gone.
Our follow up to this series will be to enhance what we have done so far. Watch for alternatives to the poses taught so far--ways to make them work for your tight muscles, complaining body parts, or balance challenges. By reachng out to fellow bloggers and participants, I've gotten a lot of feedback, and we'll be helping you to make your workout a little easier to navigate. Watch for more!
Our first 13 poses, published earlier, are at the following links, as well as at our dedicated Doga page located under the menu bar labeled Your Dog. We hope you enjoy following along and that you'll offer your comments and ideas for incorporating your dogs easily and safely into your practice, either here or at our Facebook page where we can all support one another. The comment link is always open at the bottom of my posts where you can share your questions, thoughts and ideas on the poses and incorporating your dog. I'd love to hear from you!
