Yoga Chaturanga Workshop
So today, we’re going back to basics. We are going to fine-tune your alignment, and whatever you take away from today are seeds to be planted in your practice for tomorrow. And I invite you to listen, feel and stay focused. I ask you to put aside all that you’ve learned so far about this pose, and approach it with new eyes and ears. Once you feel it, then you decide how it feels in your body and go from there. I am only offering you a tool to take with you as you progress in your own practice.
