YogaNess teams with Townsend Veterinary Clinic to offer doga

A YOGA class for dogs is taking the lead on the Border.

Townsend Veterinary Clinic and YogaNess will offer “doga” for the first time in Albury on March 17.

YogaNess instructor Vanessa Ayres said the class aimed to help people achieve a greater connection with their dogs through yoga, meditation and gentle massage.

“Obviously dogs can’t do a Warrior II pose but there’s lots of things they can do,” she said.

“I’m very envious of my dog Aero’s downward dog!”

Ms Ayres said the class was beginner-friendly and dogs must be on leads.

“Just like people, the dogs will have varied personalities; come prepared to have fun!” she said.

Doga will run from 5pm on the oval opposite Townsend Veterinary Clinic.

Bookings: (02) 6046 9846.

People should bring a yoga mat or towel. 

Tickets cost $20 with drinks and a catch-up afterwards.
