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…
Everyday activities like sitting at a desk, staring at a computer, hunching over a cell phone or even holding a bag consistently on one side can cause stagnancy, stiffness and fatigue in the body. As habits build, poor posture can easily become second nature, causing back and neck pain and even damaging spinal structures.
However, the main factors that affect posture are totally within our control, and aren’t difficult to change with consistent awareness. If you’re sitting at a desk for eight hours a day, the following tips will help support you in maintaining a better posture.
