Here's an easy-on-the-wrists variation of Down Dog to target the upper arms and back.
- From Downward Facing Dog, spread your fingers wide, and lower your forearms to the mat. Check to make sure you're creating a straight line between your elbows and middle fingers. Try to straighten your legs and lower your heels toward the ground as much as you can.
- Gaze between the hands, and hold for five breaths before releasing back to Downward Dog.
