This modified Downward Dog pose uses the seat of a chair for this Downward Facing Dog version.
“Yoga Journal” magazine has nominated me for their September Teacher Spotlight page. I am honored and excited about this opportunity. Below is the letter my student sent in that began this exciting experience. I also included the email from the journalist and photos I sent in.
This modified Downward Dog pose feels GREAT and works for those with limited mobility.
“Extended Puppy Pose” Stretches arms, shoulders, back and more.
“Extended Child’s Pose” is a great way to get length and strength in a resting pose.
“Modified Child’s Pose” is a great version of Child’s pose if you have tight ankles, knees and/or hips.
“Child’s Pose”, a resting pose generally following other poses.
“Head to Hip Pose” is another pose I teach in most of my classes as a warmup. “Cat/Cow” pose from last week works the spine front to back and “Head to Hip” pose this week works the spine side to side.
“Cat/Cow” is a pose I teach in most of my classes and use as a warmup. I tell my students if they want to practice at home (Yes you should) but cannot remember any poses this is one to remember. It works from the hips to the head.
“Angled Wall Stretch” is a great pose for your back, using the wall as a prop.
