Challenge Yourself with Chaturanga

Monday, January 28, 2019

Chaturanga Dandasana (chah-tuur-ANGH-uh dahn-DAHS-uh-nuh) is a key component of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Power Yoga.

Chaturanga Dandasana is a challenging pose that helps students connect with their inner strength and energy. This pose is thought to stimulate the Manipura Chakra, which promotes confidence and self-esteem. Students learn how to balance struggle and surrender in this posture.

Chaturanga strengthens the:

  • Arms
  • Shoulders
  • Abdomen
  • Back muscles
  • Abdominal organs
  • Wrists

Whole body alignment and coordination is involved and may be difficult for beginners. But with practice, Chaturanga promotes flexibility and focus, and becomes an integral part of a balanced yoga flow.

Join us as we breakdown the ever challenging “yoga push up,” the Chaturanga.

Ensure that your yoga practice is strong, yet safe, by learning how to activate the correct muscles and find proper alignment throughout your body. In this 75 minute workshop, we’ll talk through Chaturanga mechanics, warm up the body for a physical practice, and also learn how to use blocks and straps to further enhance your movements and understanding!
