chaturanga dandasanaMove Targets: Abs, Triceps and Back


Step 1: Come into your high plank, then push back into your downward dog. Let the shoulder blades come together and press the heels into the floor.


Step 2: Drop the hips into line for a plank. For more of a flow, you can dive the head down and through the arms instead of stopping at the plank.


Step 3: Drop your chest and entire body as low as you can to the floor with your elbows squeezed tightly against you.


Step 4: Let the hips drop as you use your triceps to push your upper body to a lifted upward dog, gazing at the ceiling. Shift into downward dog again to repeat.
