Downward Facing Dog is a great pose except if you have wrist, knee or other similar issues. There are ways to modify Down Dog. During Chair Yoga we stand at the back of the chair and step back into a position similar to a table, feeling an extension from our heads to hips.
We can also modify Down Dog by leaning onto our forearms instead of our hands.
Check out the following website for some great pics and descriptions.
The YouTube video below guides us to head placement while practicing Down Dog using a chair.
