How to do Extended Dog Pose
As you inhale push your tailbone towards the sky. Exhale and lower your forehead to the floor by sliding your hands forward. Ensure you keep your hips lifted over your knees.
Arch the middle of your back by allowing your chest to sink.
To deepen the stretch, straighten your arms, lift your elbows off the floor, and bring your hips back. Try not to let your hands slide while you do this.
Place your chin on the ground to stretch your neck.
When ready, inhale and return to the table pose.
