Downward Facing Dog is one of the most foundational yoga poses, and with good reason. Not only does it function as a semi-inversion but it also is profoundly opening for the shoulders, upper back, hips and hamstrings. When done correctly, down dog can help prepare the body for every class of pose.
In this posture clinic, we will systematically break down each component piece of down dog and explore ways to better prepare for and subsequently deepen the posture itself.
ALL LEVELS. Returning to the basics is always a good idea.
This class is an opportunity for us to take an in depth look at a specific pose that we see frequently in classes. We will break down all of the component pieces of the posture and even look at ways that we can better prepare ourselves for the form. The goal will be for each person to walk away from the class with a better idea of how to work within your own pose, so that the next time it is called in class, you know where you are and what you need to do. And if you like to get real nerdy about alignment, you will be in perfect company.
