Nope, I am not a yoga instructor, I just enjoy doing it! Since I started training last year, I have been doing more and more to stretch and strengthen my muscles. The series will be poses that I love and new ones that I discover along my journey.
Downward Facing Dog – Adho Mukha Svanasana
This pose looks quite easy, but it will take some practice. Personally I find that it relaxes and stretches my hamstrings and calves.
- Start on your hands and knees on a mat.
- Lift your legs until they are straight, push your butt in the air.
- Stretch your legs and your arms.
These little instructions are not nearly enough if you have never done this before, so I highly recommend you check out these resources.
