Get Physical: Double Dog Pose

Give this Partner Yoga Pose a try the next time you're practicing with a friend.

Double Dog

  • Partner #1 gets into Down Dog position, while Partner #2 stands on the left side of Partner #1.
  • Partner #2 places their hands about 8 to 12 inches in front of Partner #2's hands.
  • Partner #2 lifts their right leg and places their foot directly below Partner #1's right hip bone. Then they bring their left foot up and place it below Partner #2's left hip, cupping each side of Partner #1's hips with their feet. Partner #2 is basically doing Down Dog on top of their partner. Hence the name - Double Dog.
  • To dismount, Partner #2 slowly shifts their weight off and places one leg down to the ground, and then the other.
  • Switch roles so you each get a turn to do both.

LOL fitnessgirl, my husband wouldn't try this with me either unless he thought it might lead to "other" funky positions, none having to do with yoga. ;)
