Wellness Wednesday Week 127: Revolved Downward Facing Dog


Stretches legs.

Opens shoulders.

Deepens spinal twist.

Foundation & General Alignment:

Start in downward facing dog pose. Bring one hand to opposite ankle.

Hand is placed firmly on ground for balance.

Arms are straight.

Shoulders are back and away from ears.

Other hand is gripping ankle, gently pulling back into twist.

Head is turned with arm, looking underneath armpit.

Back is not curved -- in straight line with foundation arm.

Legs are fully engaged.

Feet are planted in ground for better balance.

Common Problems:

Back is curved.

Tail bone is too tucked, which allows low back to not be in straight line.


Knees can be bent if stretch is not available.
