Avoiding Injury and Stress: Perfecting Planking / Chaturanga Dandasana

Here is my short video explaining techniques that will enable you to incorporate your whole body into one organic movement and thus avoid putting pressure on the shoulders, elbows and wrists. It takes a bit of practise and remember that in order to do these things safely, they need to be worked on S L O W L Y first. This way, you avoid using momentum. If something doesn’t feel right, it usually isn’t…It makes me cringe to see a class full of power yogis doing these things super fast. Most are winging it because they don’t have the strength or the technique – but speed something up and it always feels easier.
