Downward Dog – Hold

HOW: Start by placing your hands on the ground under your shoulders, knees under the hips, and toes pushing into the ground. From here, push into the ground and raise your hips straight up into the air extending your legs straight. If you can’t straighten your knees, you can look up or slightly bend your knees. Hold this position for as long as prescribed.  FEEL: You should feel a stretch mostly in the back of your legs and lower back.  COMPENSATION: Keep your hips as high as you can, try not to lower them down.
