Bring your best downward facing dog and relax into the bank holiday at this fun, a stress-releasing class of Doga at the Museum of London for all the family on 26 August for National Dog Day.
Doga (dog yoga) is a human yoga practice that helps support the natural bond we have with our dog. By releasing any tension, stress or anxiety you automatically help your dog to be more accepting and feel secure to meet other dogs without worrying about you. Join doga teacher Mahny Djahanguiri, as she walks you through a yoga class for you and your dog. Mahny Djahanguiri is the founder & author of Doga and brought “dog yoga” to the UK in 2012 with her yoga dog Robbie, who is famous for being on Britain’s Got Talent. Yoga mats will be provided.
There are five available sessions for Doga at the Musem of London:
Dog tickets are £5 per dog, book your Doga at the Museum of London ticket here.

Other Events by the Museum of London for National Dog Day
For one day only, this National Dog Day, the Museum of London will be welcoming dogs for
the first time. This year, the museum is celebrating creatures great and small with their
experience Beasts of London, an immersive show bringing to life the history of animals in the
city. To celebrate Londoner’s relationship with animals, the museum will welcome man’s best
furry friend to enjoy a range of dog-friendly activities.
This Bank Holiday Monday, the whole family will be able to bring their dogs to enjoy Wild Life
Drawing sessions, where you can explore your creative side and sketch your pup’s portrait.
Why not try something new with the relaxing unique experience of doga (dog yoga) and
practice your downward-facing dog. You’ll also get the chance to go on a dog walk with a
difference, as our hosts take you on a walk around the Roman wall and tell you ‘tails’ of the
city. When you have a moment to pawse, there will be representatives from popular doggy
brands such as ByBenji and MyYoko to buy some feel-good treats and there will be the
chance to get some professional photographs of your dogs with Rachel Oates.
The event is supported by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), who work to
protect animals and the place we call home. Recently the organisation supported the
successful passage of Finn’s Law, which made injuring a police dog a criminal offence, and
Lucy’s Law – which banned third party puppy sales.
The day will raise awareness around protecting our furry friends whilst also being a fun and
welcoming space for both two-legged and four-legged members of the family.
