One Legged Downward Dog Pose (Eka Pada Svanasana)

A series of illustrated yoga poses with men performing the One Legged Downward Dog Pose

One-Legged Downward Dog Pose, sometimes known as 3-Legged Dog Pose, is a beginner to intermediate posture that stretches all the same muscle groups as Downward Facing Dog such as strengthening the arms and stretching the calves and hamstrings. Yogi’s with carpal tunnel and high blood pressure use caution.

To do One-Legged Downward Dog Pose, go into Downward Facing Dog and then lift the right or left leg into the air straightening the leg. Be mindful to keep the pelvis and shoulders level, just like Downward Facing Dog, but with one leg in the air. This can be a transitional posture into poses such as Wild Thing or the Yogi can bring the leg to touch an elbow and kick back out for some good core exercise.
