Downward Dog

Downward Dog is probably the most famous yoga pose out there. So why not see what all the hypes about.


Tones and relaxes the nervous system, helping with depression and anxiety. Stabilizes heart rate and can reduce backaches. Increases flexibility in the hip, knee and ankle joints while strengthening the ligaments and tendons of the leg.


1. Start on hands & knees.

2. Place your hands shoulder distance apart and your feet hips distance apart.

3. Tuck your toes and lift your knees away from the floor, coming into an upside down V shape.

4. Bend your knees and stick your bum WAY up into the air. Press your chest towards your legs and relax your head between your arms.

4. Hold for 5 breaths or 30 seconds.

Repeat 2 – 4 times, resting on knees in between.
