The Basics of the Dolphin Pose
The dolphin pose is a type of yoga style that includes the mild inversion posture and engages various muscles like the abdomen, shoulders and upper back. Here are some reasons why you should practice the dolphin pose.
Begin by positioning yourself on the floor on your hands and knees. Your forearms should be on the ground, elbows under your shoulders and your fingers pointing directly forward. Distribute your weight equally on both forearms then tuck your toes and lift your hips and belly up towards the ceiling to form a V-shape. While doing this position, ensure that your head and neck hang freely or use a pillow for support.
