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.

Fit's Tip: To learn more, see if any studios in your area offer Partner Yoga classes or workshops.

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. ;)
