Yoga | All About Pigs & Dogs: w/Tamar Samir

When in their natural surroundings, pigs are social, playful, protective animals who bond with each other, make nests, relax in the sun, and cool off in the mud. Pigs are known to dream, recognize their names, and lead complex social lives. Many pigs even sleep in ‘pig piles,’ much like dogs.
In this playful sequence, we’ll explore the essence and the similarities of pigs and dogs, via a vigorous, flowing, fun asana class. In the asanas, we take on the forms of different animals to see the world from their eyes, to learn from them, to acknowledge the animals as our teachers. As spirit guides, dogs are considered healers, they heal us through their devotion, friendliness, and loyal companionship. Pigs teach us about creativity, compassion, and intelligence, helping us to root below the surface to our inner depths.
