The stave is a discipline that comes from Japan and allows you to practice yoga in the company of your dog. A way to relax in good company.
The yoga stave (also called stave or yoga dog) is the perfect activity to do if you have a four-legged friend. In fact, anyone, at least once, will have tried to follow some online lessons except to find themselves with their dog on or next to them. Almost as if yoga were a discipline capable of attracting him.
Well, from today this will no longer be a problem. In fact, the stave was created to help you find the right relaxation together with your dog.
This activity born in Japan about 10 years ago, over time has been increasingly successful, becoming a real discipline and also coming to us.
Yoga with the dog: how to practice it
The term doga comes from the fusion of the words dog (dog) and yoga . A simple way to indicate a practice that is increasingly widespread and loved by all lovers of four hoes friends. In addition to being effective, it allows you to enter into greater connection with your dog, carrying out an activity together that can relax both of you.
Obviously, to practice it it is essential to follow at least one lesson with an instructor, in order to understand how to move safely and which positions to take together with your pet.
Fortunately, this discipline has also come to us, so much so that it was recently presented at a trade fair in Milan.
The benefits of yoga with dogs
As it is easy to guess, the plank brings a whole series of important benefits that can be found both in the first person and in your dog. Among these, the most important are:
– Greater elasticity for both
– Stronger muscles
– More complicity
– Feeling of relaxation
– More serene mood
– Feeling of calm

The stave has no contraindications as long as, as already mentioned, it is followed at least for the first few times. Once you have learned how to move, you can then practice it at home , in the garden or in a park. What matters is finding a safe and comfortable place and following the personal needs and, of course, of your four-legged friend.
