Fire Up Your Energy

Brahmacharyasana, try to do this with extended legs for super engagement! The full version requires strong triceps, core and quadriceps. Best way to build strong triceps is dips and chaturanga.

If you struggle with it, imagine you’re doing utpluthih (tolasana or lifted lotus). This helps body with drishti and alignment.

Despite a similar appearance to dandasana, these poses have very different purposes. This one is to build strength and for transitions in flows and vinyasa, dandasana is to prepare body for seated forward folds.

I can hold for about 10-15 seconds. If you can make 20 seconds or more, you’re an expert!
