Dog Yoga is the fitness trend that we NEED to try this year

Listen, we're not ones for getting up at 5am every morning to hit the gym. To be honest, we're quite the opposite.

Don't get us wrong, we like to keep fit and healthy, but the thoughts of spending precious hours in the gym when we could be in our beds is just something we can't fathom.

However, this new fitness trend might change our minds.

Say hello to Dog Yoga, or Doga, as some like to call it.

The new workout is designed for you and your pet dog, and honestly, we can't think of anything better in this world.

Doga was invented by Mahny Djahanguiri in 2012, but has only hit the UK this year. It hasn't even hit Ireland yet (which we think is a travesty).

It involves bonding with your dog through meditation, exercise and some yoga poses. Bliss.

Speaking to Business Insider UK, Mahny said: "It's so beautiful when it synchronises and the dog sits on the mat, or comes to you because you're calm."

"That's when you can reach out and start doing poses together."

Also, having a dog is not necessary, so if you love the gorgeous animals, but don't have one yourself, you can still pop along to a class.

We just need it to take off on this side of the pond. Any takers?
