Conquering the Challenging Chaturanga: 101 Basics of How-To Do this Pose Correctly


Chaturanga Dandasana translates to “four-limbed staff pose” and is also known as “low plank.” In yoga

classes chaturanga dandasana is often cued as “take a vinyasa” or “high to low plank.” Many people

think a good chaturanga means upper body strength – this is a misperception. Chaturanga dandasana is

doable for anybody but proper alignment is a must.


Chaturanga helps to:

• strengthen the arms, legs, and shoulders

• tone the abdominals

• prepare you for arm balances, inversions and backbends.


In this workshop:

• we will work to identify and strengthen the muscles involved in chaturanga

• find proper alignment in your body

• we will also learn how to transition from Chaturanga to cobra and upward facing dog to

Downward facing dog – allowing you to find ease, grace, and an overall increase in body

awareness as you “take a vinyasa.”
