Partner Yoga: Adho Mukha Svanasana Assist
Partner Yoga: Downward Facing Dog Assist
Farrah Yaspe & Gavin McKenzie
Both people come into downward facing dog, one in front of the other, the first person’s feet lined up with the second person’s hands. The first person begins to lift legs, walking their feet up other person’s back, until toes reach the sacrum. The first person then presses balls of feet into other’s low back, adjusting and massaging misalignments into place. Hold for a few breaths and switch.
Good for spine strength and flexibility.
