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.

I’ve been challenged to do 30 questions in 30 days on Facebook Live. For those who aren’t on Facebook, I’ll be posting them here as well. I hope you enjoy this series. It definitely puts me outside my comfort zone, so I thought I’d start this series discussing┬áthat topic.

If you have questions and/or comments, please feel free to leave them in the comments. And I’ll eventually get to answering them on these videos – you never know when someone has the same question as you.
