Basics of Downward Facing Dog

25 min - Tutorial


Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog) shows up in so many yoga classes and it's not as easy as some make it look. With Jacqui's help, Kira shows how we can practice the small parts that make up the posture to allow for greater ease and play within the shape.

so grateful to you Kira. Managed to be comfortable and light in down dog, which is not always easy. Thank you.
I was able to find so much more space in addition to feeling the strength of my body. Thank you for sharing this practice with us!
Dearest Catie, so happy to hear this and glad you are here! xok

I am looking forward to trying this I have neglected my yoga because I get a lot of pain in my wrists and I can't do down dog which has upset me greately as i was enjoying my journey.
Angela, for sure, please take good care of your delicate and very important wrists. Dolphin (essentially down dog on the forearms) is a great alternative! Honor invaluable the information your body gives you. Love, Kira
