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…

Massage Therapy is an easy and feel good modality that helps treat soft tissue trauma in our body. This can be as microscopic as an adhesion in our skeletal muscle tissue that is causing pain, referral pain or a headache, and as obvious as a muscle stuck in contracture that causes what we refer to as a knot that seems to roll under your touch. We put our bodies through a lot, and physical stress like working out or even the physical stress from our jobs (whether it’s sitting all day or moving), as well as mental and emotional stress, can store itself in our bodies as tension.
