How to Get Fit Like Fido

3 Jun

According to the nice folks at DogVacay, this week is Pet Appreciation Week. DogVacay helps you find other pet owners willing to care for your dog(s) in their home while you’re away, representing a great alternative to kenneling. My parents are built-in dog sitters but I’ve always been a big fan of DogVacay, both from the user and the sitter perspective! It’s hugely comforting to know your dog is in good hands, plus what better way to make extra cash than hanging out with a cool canine for a few days?

In addition to alerting me to this week’s significance, DogVacay shared this infographic offering ways to mix up your workout routine with moves inspired by your dog. As an avid yoga practitioner, I’m familiar with my dogs’ intrinsic ability to rock upward and downward dog postures. They like to help me do yoga in the mornings by sitting on my legs, obstructing my mat, licking my face and otherwise distracting the zen out of me. But I love it!

Check out this fun routine created by Julia Chan, a Certified Fitness Trainer and Registered Yoga Instructor.
