'Doga' Pairs Yoga With Man’s Best Friend

‘Doga’ – or yoga with a dog – is growing in popularity.

— -- What do you get when you pair yoga with a dog? Doga, the latest form of exercise that lets you practice your downward-facing dog with an actual dog.

“Good Morning America” correspondent Nick Watt gave it a try with his canine partner, Nash.

One instructor explained that the dogs in doga become props and even weights in some yoga poses.

Dog owner Jocelyn James spoke about the benefit of doga, saying, "It’s been very powerful for me and Peanut Butter ... she has allergies and a little anxiety. Everything that breathes needs a little healing.”

But some purists say doga denigrates the ancient art of yoga, while others are more accepting of its popularity.
