Chaturanga Dandasana – Four limbed staff pose
The fourth position of the traditional Surya Namaskar A and B, CATVARI, is a challenging pose and requires our full body awareness.
✅Flat fingers on the mat, spread like starfish
✅ Gaze forward
❌ Gaze between the hands
✅ Shoulders over the hands, broad collar’ bones, open chest and chin up
❌ Shoulders above the hands collapsed shoulders
✅ Lower back flat, tuck the tailbone, squeeze the butt and heels pushing forward
❌ Butt up, arched back and feet not engaged
To master Chaturanga Dandasana might take years, so let go of your ego and if you can’t keep a straight line simply drop the knees on the floor.
