Down Dog

But if you want to read a description, then follow these steps:

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