Downward-facing dog or Adho Mukha Svanasana is arguably one of the most recognizable of yoga poses. From a transitional asana where it provides us space to ground ourselves before moving on to the next pose to a surprisingly luxurious resting pose, this is a very versatile asana.Having practiced Iyengar Yoga for four years and finally taking the next step by becoming an instructor, I thought what better way to help me become a more conscious teacher than to break down and process little…
