John Schumacher Teaches Adho Mukha Svanasana

This week marks the week of BKS Iyengar’s 90th birthday. In honor of this auspicious event, iHanuman humbly offers you asanas as taught in the Iyengar method by Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher John Schumacher. John is among the students who has traveled to India this week to celebrate with Mr. Iyengar. iHanuman will post asanas every day until the winter solstice in honor of this event. Adho Mukha Svanasana or Downward Facing Dog Pose is a foundational yoga pose in the Iyengar Tradition and John calls it his desert island pose. If he could only take one pose with him on a desert island, this would be it because it is a forward bend, a back bend, a standing pose and an inversion.

Namaste.
