Double Dog Blog Post on Chaturanga Dandasana

Friend and fellow blogger Julia Kalish of Double Dog Yoga recently posted a great piece on the common and challenging pose chaturanga dandasana. Check it out here.

Julia has photos of how the pose should look if done properly and common mistakes, as well as a succinct, easy-to-follow description of how to do the pose.

I would like to add that it is important to support chaturanga dandasana from your back (the lats specifically) and your core and not just from your upper front body (the pectorals, etc.). If you’re relying only on your pectorals and triceps to support you, you most likely don’t look like the first picture on Julia’s post and you could be putting your rotator cuffs at risk.

Thanks Julia for the great information!
