Breaking Down the Pose – Downward Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana)

How to make downward dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana) feel better for you:

  1. If you hamstrings or calves are tight – bend knees and lift heels slightly
  2. If your legs shake while in this pose – knees bent and roll up the back of your mat and place heels on mat for support
  3. If your wrists bother you – left hand extended, right elbow bent and down on right forearm
