Pooches help owners practice 'Doga' to celebrate the Year of the Dog

The Brits are a nation of dog lovers so as we celebrate the Chinese New Year of The Dog, CGTN's Kate Parkinson met up with London’s first and only Dog Yoga instructor and shares the experience. 
Never heard of Doga? Neither had I, but when I found out about London’s newest fitness craze I knew I had to check it out — 2018 is, after all, the Year of the Dog!

So off I went to east London’s Canvas Cafe where I found Mahny Djahanguiri rolling out her yoga mats.

“Doga is not dog yoga,” she tells me, laughing as she explains that of course dogs can't actually do yoga poses.

Instead she says her Doga sessions are human yoga classes, where dogs are welcome.
