The View From the Moo: DOWN DOG DOGA

Ha-woo everyone!
Monday again, and April Showers are keeping us indoors today, but that's ok cause its time for your weekly View from the Moo!

This week I'll share some insight into the variation on Yoga "Down Dog"... done canine-style, or "Doga: Down Dog". It's more of a group activity, really. And I shall use my brofur Jack for this demonstration....

First, the Face Down
Then, the Chase Down
Followed by the Take Down
...and the Shake Down, a 3-step process:
Step 1
Step 2: the Roll Down--
Notice I'm in the classic "Down Dog" Pawsition...
Step 3...
the Roll Down Release...
This should be followed by a brief
Cool Down
...and then move indoors for the final pawsition:
Savasana, or Dead Dog Down pose
I think if woo try this out, woo will see how invigorating and refreshing a little Doga can be! And that's this week's View from the Moo!

Toodle-woo!
Miss Moo

Ha Ha - that looks like a classic Lightning/Ciara takedown, but in our case it is usually Lightning doing the takedown:)

Great pics.

I will have to study these moves. Yesterday Kat got me pinned against the bookcase and I flipped on my head. I need to be able to get her back.

Oh, I like the Cool Dog pose best. Some of the earlier ones look a bit smack-down-like!
