Here you will find a few tips on how to make the looking down dog even easier.

  1. Spread your fingers and press your hands firmly into the mat. Make sure that you put a lot of pressure on your thumb and index finger, the middle finger points straight forward. Over time the muscles in your fingers and wrists will become stronger and stronger and this will help you enormously.
  1. Turn your forearms a little bit inwards and try to pull your shoulders away from your ears as if from your ears. This activates your shoulders and allows you to make your back straight and long. This will give you more stability and strength.
