Yoga Pose of the Week: Four limbed staff pose / Chaturanga

Starting in a high plank, shoulders over the wrists, slowly bend the elbows to draw the body parallel to the floor, like a press up. Tuck the elbows into the ribs, and go no lower than elbows to waist. As you lower down, move forward so that the elbows stay stacked on top of the wrists. The core should stay strong, so there is no collapsing in the lower back. If this is too strong, or if you cannot maintain that strong line, drop your knees before lowering just off of the mat.
A challenging pose which is a key posture of vinyasa practices, and helps to build core, arm, and shoulder strength.
