Yoga Tips - How to Step Forward from Down Dog to Yoga Lunge With Vanessa Rudge
Feeling like your transitions are a little less than silky?
We generally aim for smooth transitions in our yoga practice to get that delicious Vinyasa feel. With the transition from Down Dog through to lunge so common in our practice, sometimes slowing down and playing with different ways to help our body through can make all the difference.
A common mistakes is letting the hips sag, and not giving yourself enough space to step forward. Instead try hugging the knee in toward the stomach and lifting the hips nice and high giving yourself as much space as possible to step through. You could even lift onto finger tips on the side that you are stepping through, for some extra height.
In the video below, I give a demonstration on common mistakes, and tips to help you create a smooth transition.
