If you are suffering from carpal tunnel this may not be a good pose for you to try.

How to do this pose:
(Always be sure to check with your Dr before performing new exercise)

1. Begin kneeling on the floor on your hands and knees. Knees are under your hips and your hands are slightly in front of your shoulders.

2. Spread your palms on the floor with your middle fingers aiming directly in front of you and
the rest of your fingers fanning out from there.

3. Inhale. As you exhale tuck your toes under and lift your knees off the floor. At first keep the
knees slightly bent and the heels lifted off the floor. Lift the tailbone gently toward the sky.

4. Now lengthen your legs as you gently press the heels toward the floor. Press the chest toward the thighs and lengthen the head and neck as it relaxes between the arms. Create space between your ears and shoulders be gently widening your shoulder and letting your shoulder blades slide downward towards your hips.

5. Stay in this pose anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes. To come out of Downward Dog simply bend your knees to the floor and sit back towards your heels in and allow the forhead to gently sink towards the floor in childs pose.
