Three Legged Dog Pose

Performed by Marin Jayden

Benefits of the Three Legged Dog Pose: This pose creates a full body stretch. It increases blood flow and energizes the body as well as relieve the mind from stress or headaches.

  • Starting in Downward Dog, lift your left hand and reach it behind your right thigh.
  • As you inhale and exhale, work your hand down your right leg, getting as close to the floor as possible.
  • Turn your gaze to under your right arm (but do not strain your neck).

Modifications: If this pose is difficult at first, you can shorten the starting distance between your hands and feet, or you can bend your knees.
