10 basic poses for yoga beginner
The name downward facing dog goes hand in hand with yoga, but just because you’ve heard of this pose doesn’t mean it’s easy to do.
Beginners often lean too far forward in this posture, making it more like a plank. Instead, remember to keep your weight mostly in your legs, your butt high, and your heels reaching toward the floor. Bending your knees a little or a lot is an accepted modification for people with tight hamstrings.
Eventually, this pose becomes a resting posture. Believe it!
