Doga Classes - Yoga with Dogs in Montreal
UPDATE - Classes will resume shortly; however, we have a waiting list so please check your e-mail for a choice of dates and times.
Do you want to practice yoga with your dog in Montreal?
Gaby Dufresne-Cyr followed her yoga teacher course in 2006 and has reunited her two passions in order to offer Doga classes. In four weeks, her objective is to teach you various poses such as Balasana, Adho mukha svanasana, Urdhva Mukha Svanasana, Trikonasana, Utkatasana, Tadasana, and Savasana so you can teach and practice Doga poses at home with your dog.
Gaby's goal is to improve your human-dog relationship, to prevent or reduce behaviour problems, and enjoy an enriching activity. Classes are offered at the Dogue Shop in Montreal.
Doga is an excellent way to relax, laugh, and fall in love with your dog once again. The Dogue Shop is the only establishment in Montreal where you can learn and practice Doga with an animal behaviour specialist and yoga teacher. Our Doga approach does not use the dog as an accessory to yoga but rather teaches people how to practice yoga with their canine companion.
A typical Doga class is composed of three 20 minute segments presented as follow:
1 - A human yoga routine designed to relax and reconnect with the present moment.
2 - A dog training session. Each week you and your dog will learn a different pose.
3 - A relaxation and meditation session to help both human and canine decompress and enjoy each other's company.
