Downward Facing Dog

Downward Facing Dog Beginner

  • Begin in a slightly elongated tabletop pose
  • Inhale, press your hands into the mat and engage your deep belly
  • Exhale, tuck your toes, and lift your hips up and back. You’ll now resemble an upside-down V
  • Continue breathing, root through your hands, gently lengthen your heels toward the mat
  • As you’re ready, exhale and lower your knees to the mat, returning to tabletop or child’s pose.
