Every Day Movement

Downward Dog to Cobra

One of the best movements to practice every day is transferring from Downward Dog into Cobra and back.

It Involves:

  • Hip flexion & extension
  • Shoulder flexion & extension
  • Spinal flexion & extension
  • Trunk (core, lats, glutes) engagement
  • Inhale with Cobra
  • Exhale with Downward Dog

Performance of this movement should be a 2 / 10 in effort – so that it is easy to match your movement with your breathing.

Doing this every day will go a long way in keeping your shoulders, hips and spine health, mobile and strong! However you should switch up your exercises every couple weeks to continue receiving benefits for your workouts.

Stay Strong.
