Posture Spotlight: Downward Facing Dog

Each month I’ll share a Posture Spotlight video where we can deep dive into a posture and look at some of the variations – so we can fit the asana (postures) to our bodies.

This month we’re looking at Downward Facing Dog.

The Sanskrit name for Downward Facing Dog is Adho mukha svanasana – pronounced ((AH-doh MOO-kah shvah-NAHS-anna).

adho = downward | mukha = face | svana = dog

You can list to the pronunciation here: https://try.yogainternational.com/brochure-sanskrit-pronunciation-guide/

Downward Facing Dog is often presented as a ‘rest pose’ in vinyasa yoga classes – however it isn’t restful for everyone, and that’s ok!
