Gruninger: Strength Pose Of The Month – Downward Facing Dog

Los Alamos

Downward Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Shvanasana) has many benefits, but it is great for strengthening the arms, legs and core. It also is a hand balancing pose, inversion and posterior hip opener.

Los Alamos

When we look at the present pandemic through the lens of US efforts to eliminate polio in the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s, we should be deeply concerned at some of what we see.
