Downward-Facing Tree (Adho Mukha Shvanasana):

Downward Facing Dog also known as “adho mukha svanasana” is one of the most well-known yoga poses in the western world. It is an inversion tree pose, where you balance on your hands and raise your legs up high. With the practice of this pose, you can reap physical, mental and spiritual benefits, like strong body areas, emotional stability, energized crown chakra and more. Start in downward dog pose, lift the heels and shift the weight to the balls. One by one lift the legs up into standing splits and finally come into full handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana).

Feel the sense of spring in the joints of the toes, ankle, knee and hip. Kick up a few times just for practice. If this is new for you, kick up against a wall. In our example, the right leg is the spring leg. Being long and internally rotated within the hip joint, the left leg leads the body up into the inverted position. Blood roars to the lungs, heart and neck glands. Basil receptors kick in to regulate blood pressure. Confidence fills the body.

You have to feel that you're pushing the mat forward here, so when you push the mat forward your arms will be active, then slowly bend the knee and come up, now pay attention to the shoulder area this is internal rotation not good for the Downward-Facing-Dog position, you have to do external rotation so there must be a space here and the neck must be elongate here and make sure the eye of the elbow, this is the eye of the elbow here, it is facing each other Eye of the elbow facing each other, pushing the mat forward lifting the shoulders up towards the hips and external rotation of the shoulder joint. Enjoy yourself.

Downward facing dog stretches the entire body, whilst also building strength, particularly in the shoulders and arms. It is also considered a mild inversion as your head hangs lower than your heart.
