How to fold your YoFoMat
Khataland's Yoga Pose of the Day
Downward facing dog pose:
How to: Begin on all fours with hands shoulder-width apart on the mat, fingers spread. Tuck toes underneath and on a deep exhale, lift hips high in the air. Straighten arms and legs, engage elbows, stretch heels down to the floor, relax neck. With your body forming an inverted V-shape, take five deep breathes with nose breathing only.
Benefits: Develops great strength and freedom of movement in your upper body. Focusing on deep breathing while holding the pose creates a flow of energy through the entire body, relieves fatigue and rejuvenates the body; improves the immune system, digestion and blood flow to the sinuses, and calms the mind and lifts the spirits
Note: This pose is not recommended if the wrists are sensitive or injured. Please consult your physician or healthcare provider before starting any exercises.
