Advance Your Practice: Vinyasa Koundinyasana: Up-Dog

Episode 2

In this second part of the Vinyasa Koundinyasana series, Andrea explores Upward Facing Dog posture. Up-Dog is a heart-opening opportunity in every vinyasa, but if you aren’t careful it can also be a flirtation with low-grade whiplash and low back pain. Creating length in your back bend instead of compression, you allow every urdhva mukha to be an avenue to moksha (liberation). As your chaturanga from Part 1 meets up-dog with love, begin to dance in your vinyasa a bit, creating space and ease.

Contraindications: wrist, elbow, shoulder or low back injuries

I liked all the reminders that we tend to forget when we simply run through one vinyasa after another. You and Oscar are a great team! xoxo
