Building strength through breath inspired chaturungas. Lower slowly and with control, not just dropping down. Trying not to rush this oh so important asana. I suppose it could be considered a transition but truthfully just as important as any other asana. Bringing the knee to nose, aligning shoulder just over the wrists, pressing through the shoulders, round the upper spine...... certainly a lot of consideration. How easy it would be to just drop the hips without any control and press up into Urdhvamukha shvanasana (upward facing dog), but then would you pushing your edges? Would you be putting in the work where it needs to be? Letting thoughts like “my arms are too weak” , “I’m so tired”, “I just can’t do that” creep into your mind and then outward onto your mat.
Protect your space and your practice by letting go of thoughts and feelings that simply don’t serve you ❤️ #practiceandalliscoming #chaturangadandasana
