Day 27 Tri Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana
Three-Legged Downward Dog
Downward-Facing Dog — Adho Mukha Svanasana — is one of the most well recognized poses in yoga. This variation, with one leg lifted high, challenges your balance while opening your hips. It is referred to by a few different names:
Three-Legged Downward-Facing Dog (Tri Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana)
ne-Legged Downward-Facing Dog (Eka Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana)
Downward-Facing Dog Split
Yoga teachers will often shorten the title, calling it “Three-Legged Dog,” “Down Dog Split,” or other variations. You can’t always know for sure, but when you’re in Downward-Facing Dog and your teacher says to lift one leg, this is the pose you’ll likely be moving into!
