As promised, here's your yoga pose of the month - Downward Facing Dog / Adho Mukha Svanasana. One of the most popular yoga poses in Hatha and Vinyasa yoga practices. It can feel so good, but it can also be a frustrating pose for many. Many yogis and yoginis are so familiar with it, and perhaps try to make it look like it's "supposed to look" without it actually feeling good in their body.
I recently did a workshop that focused on downward-facing dog, and the cues were so helpful, and made even the most experienced yogi or yogini re-think how they do the pose.
Check out the video below to see how I coach Downward-Facing Dog. Hopefully some of the cues will resonate, and help you enjoy this fundamental pose again.
