Daily Doga Pose- Mountain Pose
Today we’ll be doing the Mountain Poses an active pose that helps improve posture, balance, and calm focus. This fundamental pose is easy to do. Basically you’ll stand up tall and proud. You can either hold your hands down by your sides or you can bring your hands together at heart center. In the photos below I made this pose a joint pose between you and your dog (or in this case my dog and myself!) My hands are held in front of me and at my heart center that is my dog! Scout and Justice were both prompted by treats to jump up and be with me in the pose.
As you can see you can do any yoga pose and make it a DOGA pose. If you do the pose, just let the dogs be around you, you can involve them anyway you find possible. Just remember you and your dog move differently and some poses are only meant for either your dog or you! We can try to emulate them, and within time they may do the same. DOGA is not about stressing out about your practice, It’s about Peace and tranquility.
Until tomorrow, have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day.
