How to Master Chaturanga

August 23, 2013

Halfmoon - How to Master Chaturanga

Dear Yoga Community:

Chaturanga Dandasana needs your love and intention.

This challenging pose builds stability and strength that helps form a strong foundation for the rest of your practice. (Especially if arm balances are your thing.)

But its benefits are often “lost in transition.”

Chaturanga comes up and we think “dang… that’s hard!”

So we transition to our next pose as fast as we can, instead of approaching Chaturanga with intention and mindfulness it deserves.

In this video, Donna Wilding and Serah Ruth Goldberg of The Seduction of Yoga teach us how to master Chaturanga. They break it down step-by-step, adding props to help us build strength in those challenging, sticky spots.

Give it a try! Your practice (and core) will thank you for it.

Here’s what you’ll need…
