Tracy Stuart is the yoga instructor behind the doga practice. A qualified solicitor, Tracy has taught yoga for over eleven years in various locations including the Maitri Studio, Belfast. She is also a mindfulness practitioner who has facilitated groups in using mindfulness techniques for substances misusers.
Tracy Stuart, Yoga and Doga Practitioner, said: “I’m really looking forward to teaching this new style of yoga, one of which both dogs and their owners can enjoy. Yoga is an excellent way of eliminating the tension we carry around from everyday stresses and by having your pet pooch there with you, it will offer a fun, light-hearted element to the yoga practice.“I’d started hearing about Doga being taught by other practitioners in various cities and was quite intrigued by it, so decided to try it out on my own dog, Millie. Millie is a seven-year-old mongrel with a lot of energy, but after the Doga session, she seemed much calmer and quite relaxed.”
