I love Chaturanga Dandasana or Chaturanga for short. Tucking in elbows is important to protect shoulders, both in sun salutations and when used standalone. Ideally, the lower arms should be vertical, so your hands should be placed lower than in ordinary push-ups. Doing push-ups with pause in chaturanga is an excellent exercise for strong arms. I bring a regular chaturanga, one with elevated toes and one with one leg up.

Tapas

Tapas is not just a Spanish snack. It’s self discipline and your inner fire. Your determination to improve yourself, get stronger, faster, more flexible, get better balance and learn new things. Make a plan every day with what you want to be done, and stick with it. If you achieve anything else, it’s a bonus, but your main objectives are the important ones. Sometimes you need to turn off your phone to ensure you make it, and then do it. I love Chaturanga Dandasana. It is a great strength builder for the arms, and Yoga Pushups with pause in Chaturanga is awesome. Having chaturanga arms in mind helps in almost every arm balance, with exception of those with fully extended arms (utpluthih, handstands, bakasana, L-sit etc)
