YOUR Chaturanga Dandasana

Yoga asanas should not be forced, we are suppose to work on them step-by-step allowing our bodies to gradually develop the strength and flexibility needed to perform them.  Every asana cannot look the same for every individual.  To keep ‘ahimsa’ (nonharming) as one of the primary tenets of Ashtanga, we must adapt the pose to the individual rather than force every body into the ‘correct’ version of a pose.

Here we give you some gradual ways to built the body strength to eventually be able to do Chaturanga in a safe and intelligent way (or maybe even staying in one of the modified versions forever 🙂 .
