Downward Facing Dog

  • Begin on the hands and feet in the classic upside-down V shape known as Down Dog.
  • Spread the fingers wide, and flare your heels slightly wider than the toes so the outside edges of the feet are parallel with the outside edges of the mat.
  • Actively press the hips away from the hands, relax the head, and gaze between the thighs or up toward the belly, holding for five breaths.
