This week we are focusing on #Chatturanga
This isn't everyone's favorite pose but we practice it in almost every class so to avoid hurting your shoulders, elbows, wrists or back (😱), please follow along to learn how to practice safely and correctly:
What's wrong withy the first two pictures? 👎🏼Looking down👎🏼elbows flared out👎🏼 arched back 👎🏼weight dumping into shoulders 👎🏼elbows too far behind wrists 👎🏼weight pressed back into heels.
Tips/Alignment for looking like the bottom picture👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
⭐️Keep hands directly under your shoulders and feet hip width distance apart.
⭐️Keep your elbows directly above the wrists
⭐️Move forward as you lower down. Look forward, chest forwards, forward on toes. This will help prevent your elbows going too far back and collapsing into the ground.
⭐️Try to keep your shoulders pulled back. Squeeze your biceps/elbows by your ribs and stop lowering once your shoulders are in line with your elbows.
⭐️Keep a straight line from head to toes. Squeezing your core nice in tight, keep your rib cage pulled in and try not to puff out your chest. ⭐️Squeeze your glutes nice and tight so you don't pike your hips too high.
Happy Practicing! #arrichion #arrichionstrong
