Seeking Freedom (Adho Mukha Svanasana)

Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward facing dog pose) is considered a standing pose although it has elements of a forward extension and an inversion as well.

The biggest difference between a dog doing this pose and us humans is that the dog usually does this pose with joy and abandon!

Start by using the support of a wall for the hands. 

Then, take the support of the wall for your heels.

If you don't have a wall to use, grab the sides of the mat with your hands and use a block to support your head. 

You do not need to seek freedom on a different land for it exists within your body, heart, mind and soul
— B.K.S. Iyengar
