Upside Down from the Inside Out: Shoulder Anatomy and Down Dog Clinic (YogaPlus BMS-R Lab 2, Tokyo, Japan)

  • BMS-R Lab 2 Gotanda Japan (map)

Learn about the anatomy of the shoulder and refine your down dog.
It’s hard to organize the shoulder girdle in down dog because we can’t see our shoulders while we’re in the pose! A clear comprehension of shoulder anatomy will help you properly align your shoulder blades and arms in adho mukha svansasana. 

After we examine the anatomy of the shoulder, we'll explore a number of down dog variations to help you (and your students) find your optimal alignment in the pose.
