Modified Downward Facing Dog

Is downward facing dog one of those poses you really don’t feel comfortable with?

You can modify this pose using a chair.

Start by standing an arms distance from the chair keeping both feet solid to the ground.

Take a slow inhale, and exhale gentle through soft lips.

Bring the hands to the back of the chair and walk the feet out behind you.

Gently move the hips back, and soften the pose with a few small circles of the hips.

Be sure that your lower back isn’t rounding and that your shoulders remain away from your ears.

Benefits of the Pose:

This pose helps strengthen the arms, back, and shoulders and helps lengthen the spine and stretches the back of the legs.
