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.
