UPWARD FACING DOG (Urdhva Mukha Svanasana)

Yoga - Catherine Tingey

UPWARD FACING DOG

Another fundamental pose within the Sun Salute, Upward Facing Dog Pose is a wonderful heart-opening pose that if done properly, also opens and strengthens the shoulder girdle.

ALIGNMENT

Laying face down on the mat, place the palms between the lower ribs and upper waist.

Press deeply through the palms, straightening the elbows and lift the knees and thighs off the mat.

All 10 toes and tops of feet remain on the mat.

 

WORK IN THE POSE

Lift the crown of the head toward the sky without puffing out the front ribs.

Lower the shoulders away from the ears, lengthening the neck.

Rotate the inner thighs toward each other.
