Downward dog is one thing. But a handstand with a pooch’s butt high into the air?

HuffPost editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington, in her quest to find life, work balance is pushing her dog, Lucy, to the limit.

The teacher is Rudy Mettia. He teaches power yoga in Santa Monica and Venice, Calif. and apparently has a pretty irreverent bent. According to a website bio, Rudy is the perfect teacher to take you to the next level. But at what cost to poor Lucy?

A bio states, “With a handlebar mustache and a southern drawl Rudy is probably the most irreverent yoga teacher out there. But beneath the rugged exterior and the sometimes off-the-cuff remarks lies a heart so full and vibrant that you cannot help but fall in love with him.”

Should someone call the ASPCA? Where are his thumbs?
