Doing yoga, doggie style

Yoga instructor Brenda Bryan, performs a yoga pose as she stretches "Gus," her mixed-breed dog during a yoga class for people and their dogs in Bellevue, Wash. By the end of a recent yoga class, many participants were passed out on their mats, in a position their instructor calls the “upward facing belly pose.” That’s largely because about half the group was about to walk out on four legs: The Seattle/King County Humane Society now offers 40 minute classes of “doggie yoga.” Brenda Bryan, who teaches human yoga as well as the new class for both dogs and humans, says the dogs react to the gentle energy in the room.
