UPWARD FACING DOG POSE for Day 2 of the #Splits30 Challenge! 😁 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 or Urdhva Mukha Svanasana, or Up-dog, as it’s commonly known. ✨ If you find this photo helpful, then comment with a 🤸🏼‍♀️ to let me know! .

.
This pose will open the entire front body, which is very necessary for the splits. Specificially, it will help you open your chest and heart, while simultaneously engaging and strengthening your triceps, upper back, and core.
.
Correct Photo ✅:
•Shoulders externally rotated open
•Shoulder blades pressed towards each other, creating a support system in the spine
•Chest is open and proud
•Triceps and forearms are engaged, taking weight out of the wrists
•Hands are grounded and pulling back
•Lower belly is pulled up into backbone, supporting lower spine
•Tailbone is reaching down towards heels, lengthening lower spine
•Hip are lifted off floor, thighs are engaged, and knee caps are lifted off the floor
•Feet are parallel to one another and pointed. Arches of feet hug in and ground down into the floor
.
Incorrect Photo ❌: •Shoulders rounded forward
•Chest collapses
•Dumping weight into wrists
•Shortened spine
•Slack belly and vulnerable lower back
•Heavy legs
•Open ankles

If you learn from my posts, tag a friend and share! Sharing is caring 👯‍♀️ ✨HOW TO LOWER INTO CHATURANGA✨Today’s tutorial illustrates transitioning into chaturanga from high plank. This will take your practice to the next level. -
We do this transition SO MANY TIMES in yoga class, and the details of it is often overlooked. 🙈 If you focus on improving your transitions you will improve your entire practice, and this one in particular will lay a strong and solid foundation for you to do anything 😄.
-
Directions~
1️⃣ Before lowering down, begin y gripping the mat with your fingers, as if you’re grabbing a tennis ball.
2️⃣ Then shift your weight forward and pour the weight into your hands. How do you do this? By pointing the toes and pushing the body forward so that the shoulders go beyond the wrists. Practicing chaturanga this way will help you with inversions. This also puts your shoulders in the correct place so that when you bend your elbows, they are in a 90 degree angle.
3️⃣ Create RESISTANCE on the way down. Pretend like you are moving through water, and as you lower down, something is pushing you in the opposite direction. Since we aren't moving through water, you have to create that resistance within your body by pulling navel to spine, and lowering down as slowly as you possibly can, so that you can feel every muscle in your arms, chest, shoulders, and lats working.
4️⃣ Lengthen the spine, and imagine your body lowering down in one piece with thighs and inner thighs engaged.

"A writer - and, I believe, generally all persons - must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art."
-Jorge Luis Borges
