CHAT­U­RANGA WITH BLOCKS

Yoga Journal - - News -

An­other way to find safe align­ment and build strength in this pose is to use a pair of blocks. Place them up­right and shoul­der­width apart at the front of your mat. From Plank Pose, with your fin­ger­tips 1–2 inches from the blocks, re­visit Tadasana ac­tions: big-toe mounds, thighs, and tail­bone. Come into Chat­u­ranga by pulling your chest for­ward, press­ing your heels back, bend­ing your arms, and pin­ning in your el­bows. Gen­tly tap the blocks with the fronts of your shoul­ders. The heads of your up­per arms are in line with the sides of your body—Tadasana shoul­ders.
