The Challenge of Chaturanga

  • The Shala of Pittsburgh Ashtanga Yoga 3519 Butler Street Pittsburgh, PA, 15201 United States (map)

Do you struggle with Chaturanga Dandasana?  If your answer is yes or no, then this workshop is most definitely for YOU.  There are 60+ chaturangas in the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga.  Additionally, chaturanga is practiced regularly in most vinyasa flow classes.  This incredibly challenging and highly misunderstood asana if done incorrectly can lead to injury and inappropriate tightness over time.  Join Laura for this educational workshop on Chaturanga.  She will break down the anatomy of muscles involved in this simple yet complicated asana, analyze correct technique and approach to the asana, teach you how to find the appropriate muscle activation needed for a strong, stable chaturanga, teach modifications that will help you learn how to find this muscle activation, AND she will break down every student's chaturanga in the class and provide personal instruction where needed.  Hence, class is limited to 15 students.  Don't miss it!
