Yoga Foundations: Extended Puppy Pose
Today’s yoga pose is a combination of child’s pose and downward dog. It stretches the chest and butt muscles while lengthening the spine. Give this calming pose a try.
- Begin on your hands and knees. Reach your hands, palms down, as far out in front of you as possible.
- Send your hips back toward your heels, with your thighs vertical. Drop your forehead to the floor. Sink the chest closer to the floor for a deeper stretch. Breathe while keeping a slight curve in the lower back.
- Hold the pose for 5 breaths.
