Join us in a study of the yoga push up. Strengthen your practice by understanding the elusive chaturanga, an important foundational pose and yet one of the hardest to master on the mat. We will look at correct and incorrect alignment and the corresponding positive and negative effects on posture. Chaturanga is a primary transition in power yoga and, when practiced correctly, can prepare the body for arm balances and inversions. We will show you how.
Bring your ideas and an open mind and be prepared to play! You will leave this workshop practicing high to low push up with clarity and ease.
