We’ve all heard of Doga, but the latest trend for the urban dog is Boga. Boga combines the use of a ball or bone with traditional yoga poses. Try this workout for a great stretch.

1. Begin in Neutral Puppy Pose with your ball and bone on the mat below your nose.
2. Move into Downward Dog. Visualize your mouth reaching toward the ball for an extra stretch.
3. Raise your tail in the air for the Exalted Puppy pose.
Finish the series in a relaxed puppy pose.


“The Doga poses help me stay flexible and fit. But since I’ve been doing Boga, I have become much more mindful of my relationship with my ball and bone. I have become a more spiritual puppy. I can’t recommend it more highly.”
