Downward Dog With Opposite Knee Touch

  • HOW: Begin in a high plank position keeping your body in line (feet up to shoulders). Push back into a downward dog, focus on hinging at the hips and keeping your trunk straight. As you push into a downward dog, push one shoulder blade away from the floor and the other hand reaches towards to opposite knee. Lower yourself back to the starting high plank position and repeat.
  • FEEL: The Shoulder muscles working. If you feel it in the hamstrings, you can add a slight knee bend as you perform this.
  • COMPENSATION: Rounding the back and not going all the way back down to a high plank position.
