Down Dog Hurdler
This pose challenges your sense of balance while also offering a lovely quad stretch.
- From Down Dog, step both feet together so your big toes are touching. Keeping the right heel on the mat, inhale to raise your left leg in the air, coming into Three-Legged Dog. Exhale to bend the knee, coming into Arching Three-Legged Dog.
- Inhale as you lift your left arm up, and hold on to the top of your left foot, balancing the weight of the body between your right hand and right foot. Exhale to pull your heel into your glute.
- Hold here for five breaths, trying to keep the pose steady and strong. Release and repeat with the right knee bent.
