Yoga Pose Clinic #1 – Chaturanga
It’s been a long time coming but finally my new series of workshops – Yoga Pose Clinic – are starting with the first one taking place on Sunday 25th October at Down To Earth London.
Yoga Pose Clinic number 1 is…Chaturanga!
Take a vinyasa! Over and over we hear this instruction in a vinyasa flow class, yet few of us have ever really had all the options broken down for us. Chaturanga Dandasana, also known as 4-limbed staff pose, is one of the main components of this powerful and fluid transition and if you’ve ever wondered if you are doing it correctly then this is the ideal workshop for you. The pose, though regularly practiced, is certainly not easy and requires great strength and knowledge of the body to truly perform it safely and avoid injury. Practiced well chaturanga can prepare the body for more challenging poses such as arm balances and inversions. This workshop will address the anatomy and biomechanics of the pose, explore the common key weaknesses in chaturanga plus look at options and alternatives for those with injuries or simply for those who wish to take a different variation. We’ll also take some time to look at the transition into upward facing dog, cobra and downward dog to help build your strength around the whole vinyasa process.
This first clinic will run on Sunday 25th October at Down To Earth London from 3.30pm – 6pm and costs £30. Places are going fast so do book in soon if you’re interested in securing a space! But don’t worry, if it proves a popular module then I promise I will repeat…
Hope to see you on the mat!
