Intro to Yoga: Downward-facing dog


No Comments

The final part of my three part┬áseries: INTRO TO YOGA. (check out part one and two here if you haven’t already!)

There are a few things I wish that I had been taught when I first started practicing yoga. Hence I made this series as I want to do everything I can to make it a little bit easier for you guys as beginners.

For me personally I had been practicing for a good few years before a teacher finally told me the true alignment I should be in for Downward-facing dog. Then when this happened my yoga practice completely transformed!

So it may seem silly to do a whole post on just one posture. However I really believe the down dog is the basis for everything! It can teach you so much about alignment and I wish I had known how to do the posture correctly when I first started practicing.
