THE DOWNWARD FACONG DOG
A flat screen TV placed on the floor, in front of this a half rolled out purple yoga mat. On top of the mat, where the logo usually is; the word ‘SERENITY:’ is spray painted on in NIKE font.
On the TV is a 5 min video of a solitary person doing yoga by candlelight following an instruction DVD on another TV. I have edited out most of the session but where she is doing the position The Downward facing dog, and more often than not she has to look up to see if she is doing it correctly.
The Downward Facing Dog is one of the most commonly used yoga poses, and it is an active resting position.
