Downward-facing dog is one of the most common poses in yoga class. Yoga instructor Jessica Doud will explain the proper technique for downward dog.

You will begin in a basic foundation, which is a tabletop position. You will then bring your arms out a little further, tuck your toes, lift your knees and press your belly all the way back to your thighs. Your gaze should be through your feet.

From there, you can lift your hips as your hamstrings find space. If you aren’t as flexible, it’s okay to leave a little bend in your knees.

One trick you can do is to place a block between your thighs as you’re in downward dog. This helps to create a different energy throughout your body.

Moving between down dog and plank is a great opportunity to create strength.
