20-Minute Yoga Workout for Flexibility

 

Upward Facing Dog - Urdhvamukhasvanasana1. Upward Facing Dog

(Urdhvamukhasvanasana)

Begin with lying face down on the floor with your arms just above your hips and the tops of your feet on the floor.  Using your core strength and your arms, lift your knees, thighs, and hips off of the floor while pulling your chest outward.  Look straight ahead or slightly upward.

Hold for up to 30 seconds and release.

downward facing dog2. Downward Facing Dog

(Adho Mukha Svanasana)

Spread your palms out on your mat and lift your butt straight up in the air until your knees come off the ground and your legs are straight.  The key to this pose is keeping your back arched enough and your butt pointed out enough that your lower back is completely straight and not arched at all.

Hold this pose for 30 seconds to stretch your hamstrings and shoulders.
