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 that 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.

 

Sharath Jois, the grandson to the lute Guruji, is leading a group of students in the Primary Series. I can only imagine the awesome feeling of being in his presence. I was never lucky enough to practice with Guruji before he passed, so a practice with Sharath (or Manju, Pattabhi’s son and Sharath’s father) would – in my mind – be equally as magical. Enjoy!

At the end, Sharath discusses the practice of Yamas and Niyamas during your asana. Watch it all the way through, wonderful!

Because I’m not cool enough to embed it (I’ve tried several different ways), you’ll have to settle for a link:

And I love that his shirt reads “Eat More Chapatis!” 🙂 Also note, though mats are corner to corner..the natural staggering of bodies when it comes to Utthita Hasta Padangushtasana.. you gotta love yogis who are used to close quarters. 😉

Two videos, 1 sequence.. you vote on which one you like better! There’s no prize..just a way to interact with everyone. 🙂 The beautiful yogini, Jennifer Key, and I were playing around after class today, and one of our lovely students recorded this asana sequence. I set it to music post-production, and I think I have a favorite..but I’ll let the public decide! 😉
