WILD THING’ OR ‘FLIPPING THE DOG
HOW TO PERFORM
• Start with Adho Muhkva Svanasana(Downward-Facing Dog) then bring your weight into your right hand and shift onto the outer edge of your right foot similar to Vasisthasana (Side Plank Pose).
• As you inhale lift your hips, deeply engaging through the core and inner thighs. Keep your right shoulder integrated with your back, collar bones staying wide. With an exhale, step your left foot back, the knee is bent at 90 degrees and the leg needs to be strong and supportive. Extending the heart, remember to continue melting shoulder blades into the back of your rib cage.
• Reach the right leg long, keeping a sense of the outer right foot touching the ground. Let your left arm lengthen out behind you, mindfully rotating the shoulder so that it wraps inward by facing the palm down.
• Look to the left hand with an open throat, or if your neck is sore simply look down. Try holding for 5-10 full deep breaths, then repeat on the other side.
