An essential pose of vinyasa yoga, Chaturanga is actually incredibly advanced and complex. Chaturanga Dandasana has dubbed a “shoulder shredder” because even slightly sloppy form, over and over, class after class, does an unfortunate number on your tendons and muscles (rotator cuff, pecs and biceps) as well as the shoulder joint itself.

Consider this workshop a guiding beacon that will keep you healthy, happy and safe on the yoga mat for years to come.

Chaturanga clinic is here for you! Receive:

- Personalized feedback on your Chaturanga Dandasana

- Steps to refine and build strength toward full, sustainable chaturanga

- Ramped up quality of transitions into and out of chaturanga

- Options for modifying the pose without dumbing it down (or losing out on strength building)

We will also playfully explore the jumpback from crow and uttanasana, and how to decide when you are ready.

Attendees get a PDF summary of some of the strength-building techniques and modifications that we practice together. (So you can continue improving your chaturanga form afterward).
