Day 4 #IndoindiansYogaChallenge: ADHOMUKHASWANASANA – Downward facing Dog pose
ADHOMUKHASWANASANA – Downward facing Dog pose
Going into the asana:
– Start by lying down on the floor on your stomach, face downwards. Place your feet one foot apart and palms by the side of your chest (fingers pointing in the direction of the head).
– Raise your trunk off the floor by lifting and straightening your arms (keep palms down) and moving your head towards your feet.
– Lift and straighten the legs, pressing the heels down towards the floor, keeping the knees straight.
Effects of the asana:
– Helps remove fatigue and brings back energy into the body.
– Relieves pain & stiffness in the heels, strengthening the legs and ankles. Great pose to practice especially for runners.
– Relives stiffness in the shoulder blades and shoulder joints.
Tips & Requirements:
- Wear comfortable lose clothes during the asanas.
- Use a yoga mat or a carpet to perform your asanas. Don’t directly practice on the floor.
- Practice on an empty stomach empty or at least 2-3 hours of gap between meals.
