Downward Facing Dog

Downward Facing Dog is an all-around energizing pose. In fact, B.K.S Iyengar, the founder of Iyengar Yoga, says that this is THE pose to do when you're exhausted, as it relieves fatigue and brings back lost energy. It's also a great pose to prepare for a night spent in heels as it specifically stretches areas like the hamstrings, calves, and Achilles tendons that can become tight from wearing high heels or standing for extended periods of time. Not wearing heels? It also strengthens and tones the arms, relieves tension in the shoulders, and lengthens the spine all of which will help you feel good before you head out.
