Yoga Poses With BOSU Ball : Yoga Poses With BOSU Ball: Downward Dog


Downward Dog, one of the most commonly poses
use in Yoga. We’re going to perfect it with the bosu. First, we’re going to start with
the, the dome up. And you want to assume the position, just like you would on a regular
mat, coming down with your hands right underneath the shoulders. Bringing your feet right underneath
your hips and take a moment to extend in a full downward dog where your hips are going
up towards the ceiling, chest towards the thighs, relaxing the head between the arms.
Try to get your heels towards the mat as flat as you can. If you can’t keep slight bending
the knees, but try to keep your chest and your thighs lifted towards each other and
you’ll feel a nice stretch in the mid back as well. And we’re going to come down into
one-legged downward dog, rotating out in the hip at the extended leg, leaving the knees
slightly bent in the supported leg and release down, come back into full downward dog. Again,
pressing the hips up towards the ceiling, heels towards the mat, thighs towards the
chest; and on the other side, if it bothers your wrist, make sure that you’re not putting
your weight into the arms. You have less to press against with the bosu than you do to
the ground. So just make sure that you’re lifting your weight up towards the ceiling
so you don’t feel pressure in the wrist. Simply roll back toward your feet like you would
in a standing forward position and roll up, one vertebrae at a time. And if you really
want to mix up the downward dog, make it more of a challenge, you can turn the ball over
on its dome and balance on the flat surface.
