Downward Dog Has Your Back

Downward dog will forever be a yoga staple, but why? A lot of it has to do with the goodness it does for the back, activating what's known in acupuncture as the bladder channel. The bladder channel "run[s] from the inner eye, up and over the head, down the entire spine and posterior leg, along the side of the foot and ending at the pinky toe," and it has the most acupuncture points in the whole body. The pose is practically designed to make your body feel good! Check out more here in this article by Sara Calabro on Elephant Journal!
