Urdhva Mukha Svanasana

Urdhva mukha svanasana (upward facing dog pose) is a great pose for lifting energy and preparing your body for a session of backbends. We commonly practice this pose in conjunction with other backbending asanas. It can, however, be helpful if we sometimes explore this pose and its many variations in isolation, as the sole focus of your practice session. This kind of practice can help to deepen your understanding of this key asana.  It can give you the opportunity to optimise alignment and address problems that may potentially arise. Although urdhva mukha svanasana (upward facing dog pose) is not commonly thought of as an advanced backbend, it is a pose that can still present obstacles for many people. In particular, it can be a potentially challenging pose for people working with problems associated with wrists, elbows, shoulders, necks and lower backs. This class takes an in-depth look at urdhva mukha svanasana. In addition to troubleshooting some of the common problems, the class also explores key actions and fundamental techniques. click here to view the video.urdhva mukha svanasana upward facing dog pose
