CHAT­U­RANGA

Yoga Journal - - News -

Clas­si­cal Chat­u­ranga builds on the align­ment and prop work you prac­ticed in the pre­vi­ous pos­tures. Be­gin in Plank Pose with your shoul­ders slightly ahead of your wrists. Plug into the floor with your big-toe mounds to ac­ti­vate your quadri­ceps, lift the tops of your thighs, and keep your tail­bone heavy. Ex­hale into Chat­u­ranga. Think more about pulling your chest for­ward than low­er­ing. This will help keep the heads of your up­per arms in line with the sides of your body, rather than col­laps­ing to­ward the floor. Catch your­self at el­bow height. Again, Tadasana shoul­ders!
