This week I’d love to share with you my top tips on how to do an Upward Dog really, really well.
The Upward Dog is a great heart-opening posture that gains strength and trust whilst toning the glutes, shoulders and back.
If you’re new to yoga, I suggest practising in front of a mirror so you can correct yourself. When it comes to yoga and your asana (pose), alignment is key. If your alignment is askew, then you run the risk of injury and being hurt usually means your off the mat for a few weeks. So, know your body’s limits and learn to feel the difference between a strong stretch and a painful stretch.
Bianca’s tip: Never look at your neighbour and compare. Close your eyes and get to know your body and how far it can extend itself. Just remember every time you practice you’ll be able to go deeper. Practice masks perfect!
Lots of luck, and if you have any questions, I’d love to chat to you on www.facebook.com/BiancaMayCheah, so please do send me a message.
