Exercise of the Week

Exercise of the Week: Downward Dog Push Up Into
Chaturanga
This advanced exercise combines shoulder strength,
core stability and upper arm strength.
Start in downward dog with hips lifted and the crown
of the head towards the ground. Lower into the push up,
challenging the medial deltoids. Push back up and roll the
body into chaturanga, finishing in modified cobra.
