- Saturday November 9th
- Duration: 2hrs
- Time: 1-3pm
- Max participants: 20
First of a 3 part Series: Chaturanga 101 is an in- depth exploration of one of the most crucial foundational poses in vinyasa yoga. Chaturanga dandasana, or four-limbed staff pose, is necessary for building upper body strength and balance to explore and express more advanced yoga poses, or asanas. Topics covered will include anatomy of the shoulders, wrists, and hands, alignment to the rest of the body, and how to safely and effectively transition into and out of the pose. We will discuss why chaturanga is more than just a “yoga push- up” or a stop between other poses, as well as some of the potential for injury involved in not performing chaturanga correctly. Personalized instruction on how to engage the right muscle groups and technical feedback will be offered. This workshop is ideal for newer practitioners looking to build a strong foundation for their growing practice, as well as seasoned yogis and teachers looking to revisit such an important asana in a new, in-depth manner.
