Lifting one leg in this Chaturanga variation really targets your triceps and shoulders.
- From Down Dog, shift weight forward, so your shoulders are directly over your wrists, coming into a plank position.
- Bend your elbows behind you, brushing your arms against the sides of your body as you lower down. Hold Four-Limbed Staff with your body in one straight line, making sure your elbows are at 90-degree angles.
- Lift your right leg a few inches off the floor, pointing your toes, and hold for three deep breaths. Release that foot to the floor, and lift your left leg for another three breaths.
- Release your left foot to the floor, inhale into Upward Facing Dog, and exhale into Downward Facing Dog.
