Essential Poses and Practice: Chaturanga Tune-Up
About this class:
Tune up your Plank Pose and Chaturanga Dandasana (Four Limb Staff Pose) in this focused class. Begin with awakening and strengthening your deep core (transverse abdominus) in supine poses and mimic the shape and actions of Plank Pose to Chaturanga Dandasana. Progress to Plank Pose on your forearms, learn a modified (knees down) Chaturanga Dandasana to Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose). Use the wall to increase your proprioception by closing the kinetic chain, practice pushing up into Chaturanga Dandasana from the floor, as well as modulating the release down from Plank Pose, and culminate in transitioning into Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward Facing Dog Pose) and Sun Salutation sequencing. Prop list: 2 blocks, wall.
