You have the chance to pamper your pooch as dog yoga is coming to Hampstead.

Camden’s one and only “Doga” instructor will be beginning classes in a steak restaurant this weekend.

Swiss-born Mahny Djahanguiri, 40, has found a new home for her canine yoga classes at Gaucho restaurant in Heath Street after she had been priced out of her previous studio space in The Pirate Castle in Oval Road, Camden Town.

Ms Djahanguiri, whose classes have been broadcast on TV programmes including Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and BBC News programme Stop/Start, will be doing a live Doga demonstration with her pet Robbie at Gaucho on Sunday.

The classes are designed for dog owners and their pets to perform together, allowing them to bond through shared yoga poses and mimicking breathing exercises.

The event at Gaucho on Sunday will include a Doga question and answer session with Ms Djahanguiri.

This will be followed by a three-course meal and Santa’s doggie grotto.
