Yoga Pose Of The Day: Downward Facing Dog

šŸ§˜ā€ā™€ļø #YogaPoseOfTheDay: Downward Facing Dog šŸ§˜ā€ā™€ļø

One of the most recognizable yoga poses, Downward Facing Dog is a staple of most yoga classes. It’s a great pose for stretching the hamstrings, calves, and spine, as well as building upper body strength.

To get into the pose, start on your hands and knees with your hands shoulder-width apart and your knees hip-width apart. Curl your toes under and lift your hips up and back, straightening your arms and legs. Press your palms and fingers firmly into the mat and engage your core muscles to lift your hips up and back.

Your heels may or may not touch the ground – that’s okay! Just focus on lengthening your spine and relaxing your head and neck. You can also pedal your feet back and forth to warm up your hamstrings and calves.

Remember to breathe deeply and hold the pose for several breaths, then slowly release and come back to your starting position.

Give Downward Facing Dog a try and let me know how it feels for you!

Hi love, Iā€™m Silvia!

Iā€™m a specialist in starting over.Ā 

Trauma revealed truths that took me to some faraway places for healing and wisdom. In Bali, South America, New Zealand, Australia, Laos, Hawaii and Malaysia, I soaked it up, took bold actions, and expanded what was possible for me.

Through all of this I learned something profound;Ā the power of resiliency can be taught and even making a 5% change can change the future dramatically.

Now I teach women like you to access the power within you to change your life, celebrate your genius and start over to create any life you dare to dream.
