Three-Legged Downward-Facing Dog Pose | Begin in Down Dog. Consider any rigid places in your life and ask to live with greater generosity. Lift your right leg up behind you, squeeze to the midline, and turn the inner thigh up to the sky. Bend your right knee and open up the hip and thigh with external rotation. Imagine you are sending massive amounts of compassion from your heart out into the world as you stretch open. After 5 breaths, step your right leg forward into a Low Lunge.
