31 Days of Yoga – One Legged Downward Dog (Eka Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana)

Welcome to day 12. Today we will advance to one-legged downward dog. This pose is a simple transition from yesterday’s downward dog. Though you are standing on two hands and one leg, keep your shoulders and pelvis square. This will help with your stability when you begin to lift one leg. When they’re first trying. If you can keep your hips aligned and practice mindfulness you will find it easier to keep your balance in this position.

  • Strengthens the arms
