Green+Aquamarine: Asana of the Week #1

Tuesday, 22 July 2014

Asana of the Week #1

Today I am starting a new blog series. Each week, on Monday or Tuesday I will share a pose and explain how to get into the position correctly. Then, I challenge you to try the asana, and tag me on Twitter (@EleanorMayC) or Instagram (@EleanorMay_C) using the hashtag #AsanaoftheWeek Comment below if you have got involved, and have fun!

This week I am starting with one of the most well known yoga poses, the Downward Facing Dog, or Adho Mukha Svanasana. Done properly, the Down Dog should create a pull around the shoulder blades. The pose strengthens and energises the body. This pose can be done with fit together or hip distance apart.

Start on your hands and knees, making sure that your shoulders are stacked directly above the wrists. Curl the toes under and push back to straighten the legs. The fingers should splay widely to form a strong base. Push your chest towards the floor and hips upwards as you squeeze the shoulder blades together. Hold for five slow breaths through the nose, and return to your hands and knees. Finish in Child's Pose if you need to rest.
