In this yoga pose tutorial, yogis Alba Avella and Ashton August from YogiApproved.com show you the proper alignment for Downward Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana).
Downward Facing Dog, commonly referred to as Down Dog, is a common yoga pose practiced in most yoga classes. For this reason alone, it’s really worth taking the time to practice it and understand proper form.
Downward Facing Dog also comes with a huge list of physical benefits including: strengthening the arms and legs, in addition to stretching the shoulders, hamstrings, and calves. This foundational yoga pose is perfect for strengthening and preparing the body for more advanced poses. Downward Dog also helps you learn about the inner workings of your own body: where your tightness and tension lie, and where you need to correct any imbalances.
