sassymoniker BENEFITS of UPWARD FACING DOG. This yoga pose is a backbend that opens the chest and shoulders and strengthens the arms and legs. It's central to Sun Salutations and is practiced repeatedly between other postures in flow classes. Linking breath to movement is important when you're practicing Up Dog, because the breath animates and illuminates the pose and opens the heart.
FITNESS GAINS:
Strengthen the spine, arms and wrists
Stimulate the organs of the abdomen
Improve posture by stretching anterior spine and strengthening posterior spine
Stretch chest and lungs, shoulders and abdomen
Increase lung capacity to relieve the symptoms of asthma
Poses like this are critical for a healthy back, especially with so many of our daily postures and chores that induce the forward fold of the torso. When we are forward all day--whether sitting at our desks or driving for hours on end--we over-stretch our back muscles and weaken our abdominals.
ATHLETES GAINS:
1.) Sports of agility and speed often call for a supple and flexible spine. A back that can open in all directions is more efficient, whether it's plays on the football field, acrobatic plays in soccer or strong swings on the tennis court.
2.) It stretches the quadriceps and the hip flexors. Balance between the front and back leg will keep the leg in harmony and lessen the risk of a pulled hamstring or quad.
3.) Keeps the wrists strong and flexible--perfect for strong stick play in hockey or a finessed shot in basketball.
4.) The pose has to open the rib cage and increase the breathe capacity is advantageous to athletes who engage in aerobic sports of endurance.

nelzonj The few...the proud...the "openers." Or I suppose you can just refer to us as those who apparently don't have anything better to do at 4:30am. #motivation #dedication #tooearly 2h
