Rachel Brosnahan tries to get her dog to do yoga: best at-home content?

I’m really enjoying the DIY content during this difficult stay-at-home time. Some of the best moments are fails, like Rachel Brosnahan saying she could get her dog to do yoga with her during her remote appearance on The Tonight Show. I fully expected her dog, Nicky, to copy her downward dog position at least, but spoiler the dog just lies down. Rachel’s other dog, Winston, I think he’s an akita Shiba Inu, doesn’t do a yoga move either and just comes sniffing at the camera. Jimmy tries to get his dog, a golden retriever called Gary, to do yoga with him and Gary isn’t having it either. (Sidenote: Gary is a star! He’s often in Fallon’s videos.) I don’t think Jimmy does much yoga because his downward dog looks like a high plank.

Rachel said she’s been in her apartment in NY for 23 days with her husband and their “NY family,” who she says are their two best friends. She didn’t name them though and I got the impression that they could be assistants or something. I know that’s rude, but that’s what came to mind. If that’s the case she considers them best friends, which is really nice. Also I don’t know much about Rachel’s private life and assumed she has kids. Other than Winston and Nicky, she does not.

Here’s the video queued up to the dog yoga part. It’s just cute. The best part is toward the end where Rachel and Jimmy bond over how much they love Survivor! Jimmy asks Rachel if she’d ever go on Survivor and she said she would love to, “but I’d have to wait until my career is in the toilet.” This whole interview was adorable, like a hug from your favorite teacher when you run into them at the store, back when that was an option. Also, her hair looks like she took out her extensions and let it air dry. I admire that.

Rachel is promoting the #Healthcareheroes initiative to raise awareness of the need to stay home so our healthcare professionals can do their jobs. Her charity is Covenant House which works with homeless youth. Plus of course she’s in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, all three seasons of which are available on Amazon Prime.

If you came here for dog yoga, here’s an Italian guy whose chihuahua does yoga like a champ. You’ve probably seen this already, but it’s amazing. The dog even turns his head like his owner!

Rachel’s dog Nicky did do downward dog once on camera though!

Oh and if you want to try yoga, definitely check out Yoga with Adriene. I know so many people who love her, and she’s helped me recover from several injuries and sprains.

    So cute! I thought they were talking about the Shiba Inu, they have minds of their own.

    Oh, Nic and Pancho! I love love them, they did some great things together. Alas, Pancho (the dog) just passed away a few weeks ago, another era ended 🙁 not to thread jack, but this is v sweet… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Av8rQDPOB0U

    Pancho is my vid of the month. Hands down. I used to make fun of people who watch cat and dog videos, but I watch cat and dog videos now so I have to make fun of myself. But myself thinks there’s a lot more smart pets out there than dumb.

    I’m on day 6 of Yoga with Adriene’s 30 day yoga challenge for this year, aptly titled ‘Home’. I’m completely green and she is kicking my ass but I’m going to keep coming back because her energy is so reassuring and positive. Would recommend!

    • Dazed and confused says:

      I started “Home” on my first day of our 30 day “stay at home” order. Today is day 14 for me. I love YWA! I feel like day 6 was the most challenging with all those boat poses. But there are some delicious days coming up for you!!

      • Babadook says:

        I’m glad I’m not the only one traumatised by the boat poses – they’re killer! I’m excited to see what’s next. Best of luck with the rest of the journey!

    • Snazzy says:

      Oh I meant to start. I did day 0 a few days ago and then got sidetracked. I’ll start day 1 today!

    • laura-j says:

      I’m working through that too! It’s tough for me, but I got some blocks and use them … I love not judging myself and if I need to miss a day all good too…. only good thing about quarantine.

      My dog gets all worried that I can’t pet her and licks me too… I am perfectly willing to take breaks to pet her.

    That pittie of hers!! I want all the kisses from that dog. I am in love.

    I have been trying to do yoga with a very high energy 7 month old 50 lb puppy. I finally started to make some headway and get him used to it and then I broke my toe and possibly sprained my ankle 😪. No more yoga for me, no more hikes for me. I dont know how I’m going to stay sane.
