This yoga class/tutorial takes a brief yet potent look at moving through chaturanga, and floating through upward and downward dog. Chaturanga is a challenging pose to get right and an easy to pose to get a shoulder injury. The focus is on core stability, shoulder placement and the very powerful connection to moving with breath.

Great tutorial! Thank you!
this was very helpful.
A great tutorial especially to make sure you are doing the pose correctly.
I have very stiff shoulders and they seem very weak. Otherwise I am healthy and injury free. My questions are, is it normal to feel so much shoulder fatigue that I can’t follow the class without resting in downward dog or on my knees from time to time? There is no sharp pain, just the feeling of discomfort and aching. Also when I drift forward from downward dog to plank, my shoulders extend beyond my wrists and I have to walk my hands forward, is that normal for some people? Or should my downward dog be longer if that makes sense? In general I feel a lot of discomfort in my shoulders but I wouldn’t say pain necessarily, will that go away as I get stronger? If anyone has any advice for me that would be very helpful, thank you!
