April Yoga Puppy and Monty’s Suggestion

April’s pose is Upward-Facing Dog as shown here by Pansy⬆️🐶 aka Up Dog.

Monty suggests combining this pose with Downward-Facing Dog ⬇️🐶 aka Down Dog.

Moving into Down Dog from Up Dog.

On an exhale turn your toes under and and lift your knees away from the floor.  Tail (or tailbone) reaches to the ceiling.  Thighs reach to chest.  Heels press back towards floor.

Knees stay soft, don’t lock them.

Keep the head between the upper arms but not hanging, back of neck long not compressed.

Here is my brother Roscoe doing down dog.

He should try to position his tail more like mine here:
