An important asana in the sun salutation. Great for shoulder endurance and flexibility in calf muscles. Very beautiful in correct form. It’s far from obvious to know if you have good form, you’ll probably need a yogi friend or at least a camera so check.
Sanskrit is Adho Mukha Svanasana
Also known as Downward dog or just downdog
For Svadhyaya, the niyama of self-study

Variations: Threelegged Dog
