Mini-Workshop: Investigating Downward Facing Dog Pose
Video through my online studio.
So, how many downdogs have you done over the years? For fun, I actually estimated on Facebook one day. I had somewhere around 20,000 downdogs and we all concurred, it was probably an underestimation. I LOVE this pose and for good reason. It is a small inversion, forward fold, arm strengthener, and so much more.
BUT (you had to know a but was coming!) there is much we can do in this pose to reduce the effectiveness and maybe even harm ourselves.
Enjoy this video, breaking down this pose.
