Downward-Facing Dog
Jeff Von Hoene

Downward-Facing Dog

From Upward-Facing Dog, push body up into an inverted V position by lifting hips off the mat while straightening arms and legs. Body weight should be evenly distributed between hands and feet (heels on the floor) with fingers spread to absorb weight and help protect the wrists. Keep legs and torso straight, with head facing toward the floor between arms and neck relaxed. Lift the tailbone, pull abdominals toward spine, and tighten the quadriceps (front of thighs) to straighten knees (but don’t lock them).
