Adjust Your Down Dog
I’m going to tell you the exactly correct alignment for Downward Facing Dog. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
The truth is: it depends! It depends on your body, your anatomy, your flexibility, your comfort, and how your practice might feel on any given day.
Start in a high plank with your shoulders above your wrists, high on the balls of your feet. Shift your hips back into downward facing dog…and use this position as a starting point.
The goal in downward facing dog is to feel anchored and grounded in your hands, but buoyant in your heels. Try a few of these tricks out and see if they feel right in your body. And remember: your downward dog might feel different from one practice to the next.
