PUPPY LOVE: Down Dog For A Healthy & Strong Practice

Instructor: AC Lambeth

Date/Time: Sun Nov 13th, 3-5:30pm
Location: Studio

Downward-facing dog is one of the most common poses in yoga classes, and yet many students have never actually been instructed on how to do it. Learning the proper alignment to this foundational pose can not only bring healing to the body but also springboard your practice to a new level.

In this all-levels workshop, we will explore the therapeutic and healing nature of Downward-facing Dog. Learn why Downward-facing Dog is known as “the garlic of all the poses.”

Do you experience wrist or shoulder pain? Down Dog can help you strengthen your arms to relieve this pain in other poses.

Do you have low back issues? Down Dog is a great way to open your upper back and relieve low back strain.

Do you have tight hamstrings and achy hips? Down Dog can safely stretch the hamstrings and encourage healthy hip alignment.

For more experienced students, deconstructing this basic pose will unlock the secrets of moving into more advanced poses, like inversions and arm balances. In fact, some people consider Down Dog to be Handstand Prep.

Have you reached a plateau in your practice? The principles of alignment that a good Dog requires are the building blocks to all arm balances and inversions.

Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced yogi, refining your alignment in Downward-facing Dog can bring you greater freedom and growth throughout your practice.

A good dog is a yogi’s best friend!
