Downward dog is found in almost every style of yoga, and has many benefits to it. This week, CannaYoga breaks down the pose so you can practice some cannabis-enhanced yoga in the comfort of your home!
Down dog helps to stretch your shoulders, hamstrings and calves while strengthening the arms and legs. It’s typically used at a resting posture during the practice, much like Child’s Pose – although Child’s Pose is more restorative and relaxing, and Down Dog is engaging.
Be sure to listen to your body and breath in each pose – just like with edibles, ease into it slowly! If you notice your breath becomes labored or you’re holding it, that is a sign to come out of the pose and explore a modified version.
Once done with Downward Facing Dog, come back to table top then take Child’s Pose if that feels right in your body.
