There is really nothing a dog cannot do. Whether it is playing fetch, swimming, or learning new tricks. Now, they can even teach you how to do your favorite yoga poses. While doing yoga with your dog might not be the first thing you’d think of, one dog is taking the Internet by storm by showing his owner how to do some yoga poses.

The video starts right out the gate. There is a woman on a yoga mat, and her dog laying right across from her. In the video, the woman can be seen trying to move her leg over her head, one of the harder poses to do in yoga. Seeing her owner struggling, the woman’s dog places its leg behind its head.
