Day 2 of the Q&A Challenge on Facebook Live. Today I discuss the anatomy and alignment of the upper body in Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog). The muscles referenced in my discussion are:

Serratus anterior
Serratus anterior
Latissimus dorsi
Latissimus_dorsi
Teres major

teres-major-2

Working the fundamentals of Down dog can help develop a foundation for arm balances, headstand, and even open the shoulder girdle for backbends. All the advanced poses are built in the basics.
