Chaturanga Check In

  • Beacon Hill Yoga 57 Phillips Street Boston, MA, 02114 United States (map)

MARCH 4TH, 2018

Chaturanga Dandasana (Four-Limbed Staff Pose) builds strength and stability through the entire body while also preparing for arm balances and inversions.

This workshop will cover the foundation alignment as well as go though various modifications and variations of chaturanga dandasana. We will flow through tricks and tools that can be used to build or maintain a healthy, strong, sustainable chaturanga practice.  We will discuss and identify common areas of injury and how they could be avoided. 


This workshop is wonderful for beginners looking to learn the foundation of chaturanga as well as for seasoned practitioners looking to check in on their alignment and work on variations.


Come ready to practice with water.

Pen and notebook optional.
