If you're having issues with the player:

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.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga

Thank you for this short, sweet and clear tutorial! I feel more aware, enlightened, about this pose and the transition and position of the feet, arms, back. Namaste from Switzerland.

I loved this tutorial. It served as a very powerful refresher for me, which I feel is really important. The preparation, alignment, and release is amazing. Thank you so much. thing, I cannot get my knees to stack under my shoulders.... honestly, I'm just being funny, Tracy said that in the beginning and it made me smile remembering how many times I've done things like that as a teacher. This tutorial class is brilliant. Namaste from Ireland.

Such a sweet tutorial. Thank you for this, it really helps me focus on my alignment during the transitions between upward and downward facing dog. i have been working diligently on "flipping over" my toes and I'm getting there! So this was so timely for me. And much appreciated! Will keep this in my rotation for sure.

Great tutorial

Tracy provides space for me to really examine how my wrists, shoulders and core work together for plank and chattaranga. Not a one time tutorial! I'll be using it several times to build muscle memory and increase strength. And it's a nice way to start the day on top of all that. Thank you, Tracy!

Very encouraging class. I'm

Really helpful points about using the core in chaturanga, and how to correctly flip the toes over for upward facing dog. Great!!
