The Chaturanga

The posture of Chaturanga does not only allow to relax and overcome stress; it is also a recommended posture to refine his silhouette and work his abs. This posture essentially solicits the muscles of the arm, the abdominal belt, and the legs.

Start putting yourself on all fours, resting on your hands flat on the ground, your knees and the tips of your feet. Align the wrists of your hands to your shoulders and spread your fingers well.

Spread the knees very slightly at the same level as the hips.

While inhaling, gently lower the bust towards the ground; by bending your elbows and taking support and strength on your knees and hands. The elbows must be glued to the body.

Now, you are lying on the floor, your elbows bent at 90 °, (that they remain stuck to the body but do not spread them). By inspiring, contract your abs, push your hands on the ground and climb the whole body, while keeping the alignment of the head, spine, buttocks and heels (because you are in support of the tips of the feet).

Stay in this posture for 30 seconds and return to the ground. Repeat this up and down movement 3 to 5 times.
