    Downward-Facing Dog provides an overall body stretch. It stretches your hamstrings, calves, shoulders, hands, and arches of your feet. Adho Mukha Svanasanahelps in relieving fatigue and gives freshness to the body. This pose also calms the mind and relieves stress.

    Start off on your hands and knees, then curl your toes under, and straighten your legs. Make sure you pull your shoulder blades together. You may want to walk your feet back a bit to get comfortable in this posture. Once you’re situated, just focus on pushing down on the floor with your hands and keeping your back straight. Don’t worry if your feet don’t touch the floor – in time, you’ll get there.
