See this short clip to try out a really effective Chaturanga drill which will help you to build up strength and muscle memory to uplevel and deepen your practice. In our upcoming @Yoga Unwrapped Chaturanga Up Dog Down Dog workshop this Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May 10am-12.30pm at @Heather Yoga, we will be practicing many more fun and challenging exercises and drills which will enable you to refine your alignment and feel steady and stable for when you transition in and out of this pose.

Observing our Vikruti with the Seasons

Observing our Vikruti with the Seasons

Ayurveda teaches us to observe our ‘vikruti’ which is our current state. When (or before) we notice a pull in one direction, we implement tools to keep the balance. The seasons are an obvious example that affect us all. During the time of spring into summer, the heat is rising, there are more daylight hours and due to this, we often increase our social interactions.

Building Strength for Chaturanga

Building Strength for Chaturanga

Chaturanga Dandasana is a really difficult and challenging pose. It is also intrinsically linked within vinyasa flow transitions and sun salutations. We use the whole of the body when we come into it and hold it, and this requires high levels of strength, integrity and skill. The most common alignment mistakes that we make in Chaturanga Dandasana occur because we haven’t given ourselves enough time to lay the ground-work and build up the necessary strength.
