Chaturanga Dandasana - Four Limbed staff
Anga = limbs.
Danda=staff of support.
Asana=posture or steady pose.
This posture is also known as the four limbed staff or low plank. It helps to strengthen the arms and the muscles of the core. It is ideal as a transition between downward facing dog and any floor-based postures performed in a prone position or upward facing dog. It is included in many vinyasa style practices and surya namaskar.
How to Perform Chaturanga Dandasana
Begin in downward facing dog. Draw the navel back towards the spine and allow the shoulders to float forward to create a straight line between the shoulders and the heels. Align the shoulders over the middle of the hands. Keep the elbows beside the body and bend them whist keeping the whole body straight, so that you are just above the ground, pause before moving into the next posture or releasing to the ground.
