- Four-Limbed Staff Pose
This asana can be challenging, especially if upper-body strength is an issue. But you can feel your body strengthening and go deeper each time you practice.
How it's done:
- Begin in Plank Pose.
- Keeping your elbows tucked into your sides, bend your arms until they are in line with your torso.
- Engage and lift your front body.
- Remain in the pose for 10 to 30 seconds, then push back into Adho Muka Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog Pose).
Chaturanga is a transition pose from the Plank to the Cobra to the Downward Facing Dog Pose. LearnFreeYoga.com provides a great demonstration for you.
