Spotlight On The Downward Dogs

Ok, pop quiz time. How well do you know your dogs? By that I mean your yoga dogs, of course! Yoga is all about dogs: downward facing ones, upward facing ones, three legged ones, and on and on. They’re a huge part of our practice on the mat, so let’s turn our spotlight on them to get our puppy mojo working!

Now, there are a lot of yoga dogs to cover, so where should we begin? Well, with good old downward ones, naturally. We’ll start with everyone’s best friend, Downward Facing Dog, or Adho Mukha Svanasana. Let’s build and refine this pose with free video of the week #1.

Now, if you find Downward Facing Dog to be a bit too much for you, whether due to hand or wrist trouble, arm strength, shoulder instability, or tight hamstrings pulling you into a humpbacked dog, we’ve got a variation of the downward facing variety that will suit you just fine. Check out this tutorial on Puppy Pose from our Fun With Yoga Challenge that will help you access much of the action of Downward Facing Dog when the full pose just isn’t right for you.
