Day 1 Beginner Yoga Challenge: Downward Facing Dog



Yoga Pose of the Day: Downward-Facing Dog

Downward-Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana)

From mountain pose, hinge forward at your waist and place your palms shoulder width on the mat. Step back into a push-up position and press your hips back, lifting up to the ceiling, so that your shoulders are open and you look like an upside down "V." Press evenly through your palms and spread your fingers equal distance apart, with the pointer finger aiming straight ahead. Raise your sit bones toward the ceiling as you press your chest toward your thighs and sink your heels toward the floor. Maintain a straight spine. If you need to bend your knees slightly or elevate your heels, that is okay. Breathe and hold for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Benefits:Stretches the entire back of the body, reverses the blood flow to the head, and relaxes the nervous system.
