Lauren breaks down the famous Downward Facing Dog aka Down Dog (Adho Mukha Svasana) Level 1 Downdog is one of the favorite yoga pose of many.  It is the most basic yoga inversion as your head is below your heart.  Downdog pretty much has it all.  It is amazing for building strength and length along the spine.  It also builds tremendous strength in your upper body and stretches the hamstrings and calves. *Modification:  Bend your knees as needed to modify, especially if you have any tension in your back or knees.
