A for "Adho Mukha Svanasana"

This blog post is written as part of A to Z Challenge. This involves the challenge of a blog post on a topic starting with an alphabet on each day through the entire month of April excluding Sundays starting from A to Z. My simple posts will be themed after Yoga postures with my own creations as images.


Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward facing dog) is a simple posture to reverse the action of gravity on the body and get the blood flowing to the head with out the effort of the heart. While it tones the arms and legs, also straightens the spine. Thus it helps relieve pain from upper, middle and lower back.

Disclaimer: Yoga creates simple to complex impacts on the physical body. Make sure you consult your doctor and start the practice with a trained teacher.
