Headstanding Yoga Dog Poised To Take Over Instagram

in YD News

Pets and yoga are two of our favorite things. Together, we can’t resist their adorableness. Even when the pets do headstand better than we can! Ace and Holly are two border collies who apparently enjoy doing more than down dog when their hooman, Dai Aoki, practices yoga (with an exercise ball under his noggin, which we do not recommend you try, by the way).

That’s some pretty impressive balancing, dog. (Ace is the headstander, Holly is the hind-stander.) See? If you have them practice with you, then maybe this won’t happen.


According to the Daily Mail, Aoki is a dog trainer who doesn’t like the word “training,” instead referring to it as he and dogs “just having a good time together and learning new things.” Aoki is a fan of positive reinforcement, everyone having fun and training his dogs on the foundation of “consistency, patience, respect and love.”

Ace and Holly have already achieved Internet fame for their incredible balancing stunts and smarts. Uh oh, lookout Instagram, we smell some new furry yoga celebs in town!


We think Internet cats will want in on this, too. Here’s another fuzzy contender:

  • Hi there! Great article you have, I would also want to
    share my thoughts that Meditation indeed has positive effects not only
    in the body but also in the mind, a total holistic wellness that brings
    us to know our inner-self better. It gives us a peace of mind that helps
    us have a much better perception about our lives.

    There are plenty of toys coming out and the trend is growing. Currently we use Bustercubes, treat balls, fozen yogurt in a Kong and dog puzzles. Most local pet stores are carrying more stock and there is plenty available online. They are typically sold under Yoga With Your Dog.
