Right Foot - One-legged Downwards Dog


  • From the Downwards-facing Dog position, raise one leg up, keeping the hips parallel to the ground. This increases the stretch in the calf of the standing leg.
  • Maintain the length in the spine and push into the floor with the heels of the hands.
  • Straight neck.
  • Guide the heel of the standing leg down to the floor.
  • Flex the raised foot and lengthen behind the knee.
