IS FOR GO TO THE WALL

Yoga Journal - - Practice Well -

Walls are of­ten an over­looked as­set for deep­en­ing your prac­tice—and they can be es­pe­cially great for be­gin­ners, says Car­pen­ter. For ex­am­ple, Car­pen­ter likes to teach what she calls Puppy Dog Pose to new prac­ti­tion­ers as an al­ter­na­tive to Down­ward-Fac­ing Dog Pose be­cause it re­quires less up­per-body strength than hold­ing the pose on the floor. To try it, start with your hands on the wall at hip-bone height, then walk your hands up and step your feet back into a Down Dog vari­a­tion with your hands push­ing into the wall.
