TADASANA WITH CHATURANGA DANDASANA ARMS
Mountain Pose with Four-Limbed Staff Pose Arms Maintaining the actions from Tadasana, bend your elbows to create right angles with your arms. If you allow your elbows to splay outward, the heads of your upper arms will collapse forward, closing the fronts of your shoulders. Instead, pin your elbows into your midline to help pull your upper arms backward. Keep your forearms parallel to the floor and draw your hands backward to extend your wrists—Chaturanga arms. Notice that you are still practicing Tadasana shoulders.
