Chatarunga Dandasana | Yoga Fundamentals


Chaturanga Dandasana strengthens and tones the whole body including the wrists, arms, abdominal muscles, and lower back. While it may be difficult to accomplish at first, this pose prepares the body for more challenging arm balances and strengthens the muscles surrounding the spine. If this feels too difficult at first, lower down to the knees to avoid straining the lower back while still building strength and muscle memory.
