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!

BENEFITS:

This variation has the added bonus of opening your hips and ribs while improving your body’s overall balance! It will build strength in your upper body, arms, and shoulders in no time. It will also quickly tone your hips, butt, and thighs.
