Get stronger and more flexible (even if you've never downward-dogged in your life) with these moves from Marc McDonald and Jess Lopez, instructors at the Mind Body Studios at The Sports Club/LA in Boston.

Downward Dog: Beginner

  • Start on all fours with hands directly under shoulders, knees under hips.
  • Walk hands a few inches forward and spread fingers wide, pressing palms into mat.
  • Curl toes under and slowly press hips toward ceiling, bringing your body into an inverted V, pressing shoulders away from ears. Feet should be hip-width apart, knees slightly bent.
  • Hold for 3 full breaths.
