Puppy Pose is a variation of the popular downward dog. We can use puppy pose to extend our spine while increasing flexibility in the chest. Puppy pose is often referred to as heart-melting pose because it brings the heart close to the ground.
When we sit up tall, we can feel our belly muscles helping hold us up. Pay attention as you try this pose. Sit up tall and make your belly very strong. As you twist, move slowly and gently. Find the place where you feel strong and a little bit challenged. Then take a few breaths and feel your strength holding you. You are so strong!
