For the hearty, flexible, and strong. Mostly this pose is a matter of flexibility in the shoulders, back, and chest. (I confess I had a lot of help getting into this pose for the picture.)

Asana 22 – Chaturanga Dandasana
Posted in Uncategorized February 17th, 2009 by vera

This pose can be approached from above (from either a simple plank pose or from urdhva mukha svanasana or from flat on the floor (much harder). While Chaturanga is known for building overall strength, I admit it, sometimes I can’t get off the floor more than a millimeter.
