School of Yoga: How to Master Upward-Facing Dog

Upward-Facing Dog is a key pose in yoga. It plays a part in sun salutations, and you'll come across it in most yoga classes you attend, so it makes sense to get it right. Enter: Shona Vertue and her School of Yoga. In this class, Vertue explains three common problems that occur when people attempt the Upward-Facing Dog and how to fix them, to ensure you get it right every time. While the Upward-Facing Dog may be the lesser-known pose in comparison to Downward-Facing Dog, this version improves posture, strengthens your upper body and gives your chest a good stretch. If you do it right, it will also strengthen your butt. Sounds good, right?
