Yoga Tips for Ladies: Upward Facing Dog
Upward Facing Dog is a easy to moderate position and is great for strengthening shoulders, triceps, quads, and back. Also stretches the front body.
1. Place your palms flat on the floor next to your shoulders, with your fingers pointed forward. Extend your feet out behind you.
2. Press your body up and bring your chest to the ceiling, arch your back, and extend your neck by lifting your chin.
3. Lift your quads off the mat by putting some weight on the tops of your feet. Be sure to keep your arms close to your body, keeping your elbows soft.
4. Hold this pose for 5 to 8 breaths.
