HOW TO PRACTICE THIS ASANA

ONE

You begin in the downward-facing dog pose, known as Adho Mukha Svanasana in Sanskrit. Breathe out as you place your right leg in front between the hands, keep your knee aligned over the heal and make sure your left foot is firm and strong.

TWO

Breath in and lift your torso upright. While doing this, keep your arms side sideways and raise your arms over your head.

THREE

Do this with care to prevent overarching your lower back. Stretch your tailbone towards the ground and try reaching back using your left heel. Doing this will place your scapula deep into the back as well as provide support to your chest. Gaze up at your thumbs.

FOUR

Breath out, then free your torso to your thigh on the right, return your hands to the ground. Breathe out again, then return your right foot as you return to the downward facing dog pose. Hold this position for some time and repeat using your left foot.
