In this practice, we explored a wide-leg seat as an alternative to downward dog. In it, we work on both hip flexion and supporting the spine with our core. As the thumbnail suggests, we also experimented with chair pose as an opportunity to find the leg and core work of downward-facing dog without having to bear weight on our arms.
Yoga blocks, a bolster or pillow, and/or a chair may be helpful for this practice
I hope you have as much fun with this practice as I did leading it. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to support you!
