Share this story

A well-known yoga pose, make your body into an inverted “V” by placing your weight on your hands and feet and holding your bottom high in the air. Concentrate on breathing in through your nose – letting your breath fill up your belly and then exhaling slow and steady on a three count.

Beginners: Hold the downward dog pose for 5 slow, relaxing breaths followed by 30 seconds of child’s pose. 3-5 rounds.

Intermediate: Downward dog for 5 slow and relaxed breaths followed by 5 push-ups, do 5 rounds.

Advanced: Downward dog for 5 slow and relaxed breaths followed by 10 push-ups. Do five rounds.
