Puppy Pose (Uttana Shishosana)

Stretches the spine and shoulders
Releases tension in the nech
Opens the chest

*Should not be practiced in case of knee injury

Start in the Table Top position with your hips over your knees and your shoulders over your wrists.  Begin to walk the hands forward, releasing your chest towards the mat.  Active the arms and hands.  Spread the fingers and press the thumb and forefinger into the mat. Lift through the elbows, keeping them raised slightly off the mat, and broaden the shoulders.  Deepen the stretch by reaching your hips up and back and continuing to melt your chest towards the mat.

Release you forhead to the mat.

Hold for 5 - 8 breaths and release back to the Table Top position
