Downward Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana)

Lengthen your legs, one at a time, out in front of you and parallel to each other. Flex your feet at the ankles, if it's comfortable. Reach your arms upward, keeping them beside your ears, while you lift and lengthen your torso. Flex your hands at the wrists. Hinge forward slightly at the hips, and press your hands and toes against the imaginary wall in front of you, engaging your thigh and abdominal muscles. Exhale as you gaze at your toes, creating the letter V with your body. Hold for a few breaths, and return to Sitting Mountain Pose.
