Ashtanga or Pose of Eight Limbs


This is a great pose for developing a smooth transition in Sun Salutations.

Begin on all fours with straight but not locked arms.

Spread the fingers (middle finger in line with long edge of mat) and push the backs of the knuckles into the earth.

Keeping the elbows as close to the body as possible drop chest to the earth, resting chin on earth and gaze ahead.

Hold for 5-10 deep breaths.

Come into Cobra or back to Child’s Pose.
