Description

Downward Facing Dog, or more commonly known as Down Dog, is a primary yoga posture typically used multiple times within a series during practice. Considered an inversion posture, Downward Facing Dog is known to stretch the whole body while creating length and strength in the spine. Down Dog helps to relieve pain in the back as well as strengthen bones due to the weight-bearing nature of the pose. Energetically, Down Dog helps the yogi gain confidence while seeing life from a different perspective.
