DOGA: dog & me yoga at PawsWay event recap

A Saturday morning workout went straight to the dogs when Get Leashed hosted its first DOGA: Dog & Me Yoga session at Purina PawsWay!

On July 9th, Toronto’s top doggy influencers (and their fitness wear-clad humans) attended what became a riotous, laugh-through-the-poses yoga event. We connected with our canine companions by working our bodies, clearing our minds, and including them in the fun!

Led by sound-healer yogini Alexandria Santaguida and her four-legged downward-dog partner, Soul, the session incorporated a mix of traditional yoga poses, as well as calming and purifying moves that helped to zen-out the most excited of pups. Alexandria even brought out her singing bowls and ethereal live vocals for a special savasana both dogs and their owners could appreciate.

Following the hour-long practice was some well-deserved off-leash pup social time. All two-legged attendees were treated to refreshing glasses of iced, vanilla-maple chaga tea from Farmacia Health Bar as well as their pick from a gift table full of deluxe natural lip balm and beauty product samples from H by Hiroko. Swag bags contained exclusive freebies from Purina and special offers from sponsors Nuvango and Dogface Portraits.

A special mention to dog stars Iggy Joey and Pom Pom Chewy, who not only showed up in their most stylish workout gear, but came ready with their own doggie-sized yoga mats, too.
