Here is my lovely hubby demonstrating Extended Puppy Pose. It is a great one to stretch out your back and a good alternative to Child’s Pose. I also like starting my practice with this as I really feel the breath in the belly. It is a super warm up for Down Dog.
Start on all fours and stretch forward keeping the sitting bones lifted. After a few breaths try to walk the hands a little further away from you. Bring the forehead to the floor or a block. Encourage the shins to drop to the earth. Stay here for as long as it feels good for you!
