Adho Mukha Svanasana - Downward Facing Dog
This pose energizes and rejuvenates the whole body, its a great stretch for the hamstrings, calves, feet and hands as well as the shoulders and spine.
Start on all fours, hands shoulder width apart, fingers spread. Curl the toes under and as you inhale push the hips up towards the ceiling. Keep the knees bent, come onto the balls of the feet and try to send the hips up towards the sky, then start to straighten the legs and stretch the heels towards the floor - don’t worry if they don’t touch the floor!! Keep the arms working, try to widen the space between the shoulders and relax the neck. Breath...repeat a few times.
