chaturanga yoga ultimate guideChaturanga Dandasana, or “Four Limbed Staff Pose” (that’s the English name, but nobody calls it that) is widely known as the “Yoga push-up”. Chaturanga is a staple of the Sun Salutation, but is also widely used throughout all types of yoga flows & practices. Chaturanga is different from the traditional push up in elbow placement & speed, but provides many of the same benefits.

Chaturanga Benefits:

  • Increases strength & flexibility of the wrists
  • Builds strength in the arms, chest, back, and abdomen
  • Teaches the body control, endurance, and stability

Chaturanga: How To

  1. Begin in a strong plank position, with hands on the floor directly under the shoulders
  2. Keeping the elbows close to the body, slowly lower yourself down until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle
  3. As you lower yourself down, your chest should be “open” and moving forward (this is how your hands go from directly underneath the shoulders to midway down your torso without re-positioning. Your chest comes forward).
  4. Keep the head neutral, with your gaze directed forward
  5. Exit Chaturanga by either transitioning into Upward Dog, or pushing yourself straight up back into plank.

If you learn better through video, check out this Yoga Basics program with Patrick BeachYoga Basics is a set of video tutorials made for people who want to try yoga, but are too scared to go to a studio first.

Chaturanga Variations:

chaturanga yoga ultimate guideHalf-Chaturanga:

If you cannot yet perform a full Chaturanga without letting your form suffer, then begin with Half-Chaturanga. Begin in a modified plank, with your knees on the ground, and perform Chaturanga keeping your knees on the ground.

chaturanga yoga ultimate guideThree-Limbed Chaturanga:

If you are looking for an extra challenge, keep one leg suspended off the ground as you perform Chaturanga. Make sure that if you are doing Three-Limbed Chaturanga, you practice on both sides evenly.

^^^ Heart

Morning y'all!  It's long run day..... I look forward to it more than I dread it.  I'm up getting dressed sipping coffee waiting for the sun to come up.  I have completely fallen in love with running.  My body feels so good right now but I know I'ma be whooped after 12 miles and I can't wait.  Yes 12 miles.  It's been awhile but the half-marathon is 9/28/14.

I want to take a minute and strongly encourage anyone who would love to run but doesn't think they have it in them to give it a try.  There are couch to 5k programs, walkb4yourun with Black Girls Run...even just running that first mile.  

When I started running, I was over 200 lbs, depressed and toying with hypertension.  That feeling you get when you step on the scale and discover you have lost a few pounds, I get it every time I complete a run.  My first 5K was in 2009.  I stopped to walk because I felt like I was dying and an old man passed me and said, "I'm 74 years old, if I can do it you can do it!"  It was so humiliating at the time but I kept putting one foot in front of the other and finished that race.  

Everybody starts somewhere.  Running has changed my body (Heart my legs and bootay Embarrassed) my health (not taking blood pressure meds) and my mind (um, yeah, I feel like I could do anything I purpose to do and train for) oh and my closet (cutest workout clothes and shoes!).  

Hope someone is inspired.  I'll check in after my run.  Go hard!!

I might have ruined a week's worth of efforts in 5 minutes today. I should have known not to buy that bag of brownies. Here I was thinking I could treat myself within reason once a week. I'm throwing the rest in the garbage.

Twelve miles completed.  Wow, I am so glad I schedule massages the day after the long run..... everything HURTS LOL

I keep it interesting by switching up music.  I also do audiobooks.  I run in beautiful scenery too.  

Okay!  I'm reloaded!!

Yes it will. I know my body by now. It's so incredibly hard for me to lose weight now and so easy to gain. My metabolism is not what it used to be.
