Chaturanga Dandasana is a pose that is repeated constantly in vinyasa yoga and yet is rarely, if ever, broken down. This can lead to student frustration, poor technique and over time, the potential for injury.
But when done properly, it can completely transform your practice!
The pose creates strength and stability in the body and provides a strong foundation for so many (seemingly) more complex arm balances and inversions.
In this workshop you will learn:
The 3 key principles of Chaturanga and how to execute them well.
Why ‘knees, chest, chin’ is NOT a preparatory pose for Chaturanga and what to do instead.
How to transition from Chaturanga to updog and downdog (a vinyasa) with less effort and more ease.
How to use what you’ve learnt to master arm balances such as bakasana (crow), eka pada galavasana (flying pigeon), eka pada kundinyasana and more.
Suitable for all levels, but especially for those in their first year or two of practice.
