Sure, you know push-ups, but do you know Chaturanga Dandasana? This widely done yoga pose, also known as Four-Limbed Staff Pose, is yoga’s version of a traditional push-up. Unfortunately, there are many ways to foil this move, and I’ve seen it all!
According to yoga philosophy, warrior 2 (Virabhadrasana II) pose is named after a fierce warrior—an incarnation of Shiva—described as having a thousand heads, a thousand eyes and a thousand feet; wielding a thousand clubs and wearing a tiger's skin.
Boat pose, or Paripurna Navasana, is an excellent example of finding such a balance. In Sanskrit—the ancient Indian language of yoga— “paripurna” means entire, full, or complete; “nava” means boat and “asana” means pose. Despite the effort and many actions involved, finding stability in this posture can help calm and align your body, mind and emotions.
Bikram yoga, or “hot yoga” seems to be all the rage lately— maybe it’s because turning up the heat on your yoga practice may offer additional benefits not found in a typical class.
