Asana 11 - Upward Facing Dog

(Urdvha Mukha Svanasana)

NaNoWriMo Sun Salutation - Asana 11

I love Urdvha Mukha Svanasana. It's a glorious stretch for the whole front of the body, awakening flexibility for the spine, and powerful toning of the thighs and buttocks.

Upward Facing Dog is also the "breakthrough pose". The darkest hour is past. The grit and determination that carried me through Plank Pose and Crocodile have paid off as I rise up to greet the dawning sunshine.

Up Dog is over the hump. The journey home from this point is joyful and fun, revelling in the strength of poses and words laid out behind me.
