During yoga a commonly practiced vinyasa or flow, is moving from downward facing dog to cobra pose. Since we practice this transition so frequently it is important to align the upper body to avoid straining or injuring your shoulders. Alma is here to demonstrate the proper alignment. Beginning in down dog, make sure your stance is long enough, so that when you move to plank pose your shoulders are directly above your wrists and your body is parallel to the floor. Your hands are shoulder distance apart.
