There are numerous yoga poses that are just perfect for everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you are starting with this exercise or have been doing it for quite some time. At the end of the day, yoga poses are going to benefit you in many ways.

If you are a beginner for instance and want something that can help you out, then you must probably try the Downward-Facing Dog. This is also called as Adho Mukha Svanasana.

Executing the Pose

The beauty about this pose is that, it is elongating your spine, stretching your back leg muscles and helps in digestion. Since this is a mild inversion, it helps in releasing stress, calming the nervous system and helping with headaches.

To start, push your hands and lift up your hips as well as back on inhale from a plank pose. A tricky move here is to keep your shoulders engaged but not working it out too hard while ensuring that your spine stays neutral.

Just Practice

Your legs may be straight and heels working towards the floor. Probably, there’s some space between the floor and the heels. You can be flexible but in case that your legs are on the long side a bit, then you will not have your heels touch the floor. It is all fine just keep your legs active and your heels trying to reach towards the ground.
