Move Targets:


Step 1: A natural transition to downward dog is moving into a downward dog split pose, also known as three-legged dog.  From downward dog position, you will slowly lift one foot in the air, creating a smooth line from hip to ankle. Focus on keeping your standing leg strong and planted.


Step 2:  Bring lifted leg back to start position and complete the same movement with opposite leg.
