In this class, we delve into an in-depth exploration of Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward Facing Dog Pose). Alongside troubleshooting common problems, we focus on key actions and fundamental techniques to enhance your practice. This dynamic asana is perfect for uplifting your energy and preparing your body for a series of invigorating backbends. While it is commonly practiced alongside other backbending poses, it is equally beneficial to explore this pose in isolation, dedicating an entire practice session to it. By doing so, you can deepen your understanding of this important asana and optimise your alignment, addressing any potential challenges that may arise. In addition to exploring the classical version of urdvha mukha svanasana this class includes a variety of ways in which a yoga chair and other props can help you to grasp essential points of alignment.
