Day 11 – Down Dog

Have you ever done down dog before? This pose is one you either love or hate. It usually has to do with whether you have strong arms. But this can also help open your chest. So let’s try it today:

  1. Begin on all fours – Table top (on your knees and hands)
  2. Spread your fingers as wide as you can and dig them into your mat like a rock climber
  3. Weight should be evenly distributed into your palm and finger
  4. Lift your hips to the sky
  5. Arms shoulder width apart with no tension in the back of the neck
  6. Press the mat away for long armpits; keep your spine long
  7. Gaze towards your navel
  8. Feet are hip width apart
  9. And heels are to the ground; if they can’t reach the ground that’s fine- Hammies are too tight
  10. Breath your way through the pose
