What is the technique of Chaturangasana?

Come onto the floor with your hands and knees. Your hands should be placed under the shoulders and knees under the hips. Now curl your toes under and straighten your legs out behind you, lifting out of the shoulders. Bring your body into a straight line from head to heels, avoiding dipping the spine or moving the hips out of line. Feel the two-way oppositional stretch between the crown of your head reaching forward and your heels reaching backward. Breathe into your abdomen to avoid accumulating

excess tension in this area. To recover, reverse your path taken into the position.

 

What are the benefits of practicing Chaturangasana?

You strengthen your wrists, forearms, back and stomach muscles with the practice of this asana. This pose helps to increase strength, balance and stability of the whole body as it develops several muscles including biceps, triceps and abdominal muscles.

 

Cautions

This asana should not be practiced by people having carpal tunnel syndrome and by pregnant women.
